The sacrifice occurred in the state of Chhattisgarh. Two men were arrested in the crime.
Occasionally victims are found at temples in India after being sacrificed by witchdoctors.
Such a crime is truly incomprehensible for most of us. What is particularly astonishing is not just the religious faith in human sacrifice, but the purpose: better crops. These killers not only decided to kill a child but do it to increase crop yield. The sheer depravity of the act is breathtaking.
