Jaipur: A bid to carry out human sacrifice was today foiled in a temple in Rajasamand district of Rajasthan on Friday, police said.

Kesar Singh had, under the influence of alcohol, abducted a 5-year-old boy Dashrath yesterday when he was playing in Baloto village, they said.

Singh had taken the boy to a temple and attempted to slit his throat with an axe when some children raised an alarm following which he was nabbed by the locals.

The boy was rushed to hospital where he was being treated for head injuries he sustained during the sacrifice bid.
