Lakhimpur Kheri: A woman was arrested here Wednesday for allegedly killing her neighbour`s child after a godman told her the act would help her bear a son, police said.
Suman Devi, native of Adleeshpur village, Tuesday lifted the 20-day-old baby of her neighbour Shanti Nishad, police inspector Diwakar Tripathi said.
"After the body was recovered from Suman`s home, we became suspicious about her. During interrogation she broke down and confessed to her crime," he told reporters here, 140 km from Lucknow.
It`s a case of human sacrifice, he added.
Police are trying to nab the godman.
