Human Sacrifice: Two women reported missing in Kerala by their families, who were murdered and buried in a horrific case of black magic and human sacrifice unearthed by the police today.
Police said Rosselin and Padma, hailing from different parts of Ernakulam district, were murdered by a couple who wanted to end their financial troubles and become rich. The couple and another person, their agent, were arrested today.
Rossellin and Padma, both in their early 50s, sold lottery tickets in Ernakulam. Police said Rosselin went missing in June and Padma in September.
His throat was slit, and his body was cut into pieces and buried at different places in Thiruvalla, a town in Pathanamthitta district, police said.
Police said the alleged killers were massage therapist Bhagwant Singh and his wife Laila. He reportedly believed that the killings would give him a prosperous life.
The third person who was arrested, Rashid or Muhammad Shafi, allegedly helped him with the crime and persuaded him to go along with it. He is suspected of kidnapping two women from Ernakulam and bringing them to the couple’s home.
On learning of the murders, the police were investigating Padma’s disappearance. The women’s phones were found by Muhammad Shafi, who allegedly broke down and admitted to abducting them.
“During our investigation with respect to the missing woman from Kadavantara (Ernakulam), we came to know that she was killed in the couple’s house in Thiruvalla and her body was cut into pieces and buried. It was for financial gain. A ritualistic human sacrifice was that of the couple,” Kochi city police commissioner Nagaraju Chakilam said.
When the couple was questioned, they reportedly confessed to the “sacrifice” of another woman in the same house in June. Police said the woman was Rosalyn.
“It was also brought up in the same house, by the same couple, and the woman by the same person. The third person not only played the role of an agent (in both these cases) but also played a key role in accomplishing this.” She assured the couple that this should be done,” he said.
“There are many layers to this case. Now we understand that human sacrifice was done for the financial gain of the couple. Also, we came to know that the middleman has been paid. We need more time to explore the whole matter. And at the same time we are probing the involvement of more people in the murder,” said the police chief.
The bodies of both the women are likely to be exhumed.
Inspector General P Prakash said, “The bodies are not in one shape… They have been cut into pieces and buried. Prima facie it is a case of black magic and human sacrifice. Police will investigate all the aspects and details.”
