They then buried her inside the house in Moradabad’s Chaudharpur village. The girl’s body was found on June 4 when the couple’s neighbours complained to the police. On digging the ground, fragile body of Tara was found.
A tantrik had advised them that if they bury the girl’s body at home, the next child will be healthy, reports news agency ANI.
Tara’s grandmother told the police that since her mother did not want to part with the child, they buried her inside the home. They had even planned to build a temple over the grave. “We tried several medicines, but nothing worked on her and she kept getting weaker. My grandson has also developed rickets,” she told news agency ANI.
The post-mortem report of the girl was even horrifying.
There was not even a single grain in her stomach, the post-mortem report said, adding, she died of suffocation. “Post-mortem report has revealed that the girl was strangled to death,” police officer Ravindra Gaur said. The girl’s parents are yet to be arrested.
An FIR has been lodged against the couple for allegedly strangulating their six-year-old daughter and cremating her inside their house. The child’s body was found on June 4.
Blind belief is dangerous
Superstition in India is considered a widespread social problem. Like any other country, we also have numerous superstitions and blind beliefs in people of India. The number of superstitions and blind beliefs is very large as our society is made of people belonging to various religions, cultural, ethnic, linguistic and racial groups.
Superstition gives birth to, gives rise to, crimes, various fears and anxieties that are unfounded.
Mahatma Gandhi has correctly said, Faith must be enforced by reason. When faith becomes blind it dies.
