BEGUSARAI: In a bizarre incident, an occultist has sent the Begusarai authorities into a tizzy with an "application" seeking permission for human sacrifice to propitiate his deity.
The occultist identified as Surendra Prasad Singh wrote the letter seeking permission to perform human sacrifice to Sub Divisional Officer (Sadar), Begusarai on January 29. He resides in Mohanpur Pahadpur village under Mofussil Police Station area.
In a video that has gone viral, the occultist purportedly claimed that human sacrifice is not a crime and he is going to sacrifice his son, an engineer, first. In video clip he is speaking about his letter to local journalists, has also been doing rounds. Occultist said "Human sacrifice is not a crime. I have been ordered to perform the same by Goddess Kamakhya. And the first person I shall be sacrificing is my son, an engineer by profession, who refuses to give financial aid to my temple. He is like Ravana.”
Screenshots of the purported letter have gone viral on social media, but the SDO Sanjiv Kumar Chaudhary said he had not received it.
Chaudhary said, this is a serious matter. Human sacrifice is illegal. We have launched a hunt for the letter as well as the tantrik. Appropriate action will be taken.
