We have previously followed the work of tantriks in India, here. Now, one of these witchdoctors has been accused of beheading a five-year-old girl in a ritual to help a man produce healthy children.
Vandana Kumari, 5, was lured by Mewalal Chauhan to her death. Chauhan had advised Ram Niwas that he would likely continue to produce sickly male children unless he offered a human sacrifice.
Niwas assisted the witchdoctor and his assistant in luring the girl (who was a neighbor of Niwas) to a trap where she was beheaded.
Recently a tantrik was accused of rape and encouraging a girl’s father to have a sexual relationship with her, here.
Tantriks claim powers from their faith in tantra — a spiritual tradition that dates back to the 5th-9th century AD.
