Thane: In a suspected case of human
sacrifice, two children were strangulated to death and seven
persons, including their parents, were arrested on murder
charges from Nalasopara here.

According to police, Om Prakash Jaiswal (5) and his
sister Ritika (2) were rushed to nearby hospital last night by
their parents stating they fell down while playing in the
house.
The duo, who sustained injuries, were declared dead by
doctors last night, police said, adding subsequently an
accidental death case was registered.

However, the post-mortem report today suggested the
children were strangulated to death, police said.

The case was then converted as a murder incident and
seven persons including the children`s 29-year-old father
Prakash, mother, grand parents, two uncles and an aunt were
arrested.

Police said though the motive was not yet clear, they
were probing if it was a case of child sacrifice. PTI COR VM
