Hyderabad: Human sacrifice was a common and barbaric act, synonymous with the dark ages and was practised as an act of black magic to please gods. No one, absolutely no one, expected this uncivilised act to exist in today’s society. But a murder, in a city like Hyderabad, sent a chill down the spine across the city on Saturday as a woman was allegedly sacrificed by her husband and in-laws. G Chittranjan (55) and his wife Jagdamba ( 50 ), with the help of their son G Balakrishna ( 26 ) have been accused of sacrificing Balakrishna’s wife, Rajani (22). Rajani was found in a pool of blood in her bedroom at her residence.
She died due to severe cut injuries on her throat. The couple has a 3-year-old boy, who is also missing along with father. Investigations by K Subbiram Reddy, Detective Inspector of Police, Chikkadpally, revealed that Balakrishna had an illicit relationship with another woman. When Rajani smelled a rat, she kept prodding her husband over it. In a fit of rage, Balakrishna took a knife and slit the throat of Rajani. But there’s another angle of the cold-blooded murder, doing the rounds. It is alleged that black magic was performed on Rajani and she was sacrificed.
The Chikkadpally police have registered a case and have stated that Rajani died due to excessive bleeding from the incision made by the knife. The culprits are on the run and the police are on the lookout for them. The body of the victim was sent to Gandhi Hospital for post-mortem where the doctors are yet to submit their report. Subbiram Reddy had assured the victims’ relatives that justice would be served. The relatives of Rajani gathered in large numbers, including her mother, Meera Bai and brother Venkatesh, who staged a dharna at the police station. They demanded that stringent action needs to be taken against the culprits who were responsible for Rajani’s death.
