Gwalior: Two senior scientists of Defence Research and Development Establishment (DRDE) here were booked for allegedly attempting human sacrifice of their junior, police said on Sunday.

Shridha Sharma, wife of junior scientist with DRDE Sushil Kumar Mishra, in her complaint lodged four days ago, had accused two senior scientists of attempting human sacrifice on her husband, which he escaped.

The accused, identified as Dr M Kameshwar Rao and Dr A S S V Bhaskar, have been charged under sections 506 (criminal intimidation), 342 (wrongful confinement), 323 (causing hurt) and 34 (act done by persons in furtherance of common intention) of IPC last night, they said.

The accused had left Gwalior before an FIR was lodged against them, they said.

Rao has gone to some place in Maharashtra while Bhaskar was in Delhi, police said.

The police were not allowed to search Rao's residence situated in the DRDE Raksha Vihar Colony, where the duo with some sharp-edged weapons allegedly made bids to sacrifice Sharma amid chanting of Mantras on October 6 midnight, they said.

Sharma while escaping from the clutches of his seniors sustained some injuries, as he was beaten by them, the police said.
