A four-year-old girl is feared to have been sacrificed by witch doctors who were trying to locate a neighbor’s missing mobile phone.
The body of little Sunu Godba was found on Monday with her head cut off and hands and legs removed in a jungle near her home in India.
She has been reported missing on October 24 from a village in upper Assam in northeast India which is infamous for witchcraft practices.
But police are now hunting two witch doctors who were employed by Sunu’s neighbour Hanuman Bhumi to find his daughter’s mobile phone considered a luxury in the region. It is suspected they snatched and brutally killed Sunu as part of their ritual that went wrong.
Beheadings or offering up the head to ‘God’ is considered as the biggest ritual among these tribal witch doctors.
It is believed the girl may have been killed during their ritual as the witch doctors saw a full moon which is seen as a sign from their God.
