Meerut: A district court on Wednesday sentenced a couple to life imprisonment for killing a six-year-old boy at the behest of an occultist after they failed to have a child.

Accused Alisher and Shakila killed Ankur, son of a Sadarpur resident Subhashchand, on April 2, 2005 after the tantrik told them that they would have a child if they sacrifice a boy.

The child's body was found in a sugarcane field in the area.

Judge Shankar Pandey sentenced the couple to life imprisonment and slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 on them.
