In a repulsive and horrific incident, a tantrik (practitioner of black magic) beheaded a sex worker to gain “superhuman powers” in the Tamluk area in Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal.
The crime took place last Friday and came to light on Saturday when the woman’s mangled body was discovered in a field.
The tantrik, who has been identified as Ramapado Manna, met the woman at the Mecheda Railway Station and convinced her to join him. The duo stopped at a liquor shop and after a few drinks, the woman fell unconscious. He strangled her and beheaded her. He has been charged under several Sections of the IPC, including 302 (murder). He was sent to police custody for 10 days.
