Jaipur: A class 10 student, identified as Rajbeer, was allegedly scarified at Khohari village in Weir area of Bharatpur district in Rajasthan. Though the police investigation is still going on, sources said that someone close to the boy was behind the heinous murders. The family members allegedly performed the last rites of the body in a hushed-up manner. The matter came to light when some villagers tipped off the police. The boy's brother and father have been taken into custody for interrogation. The police is probing as to why they cremated the body secretively. According to preliminary reports, several incense sticks and blood spots were found in the boy’s room when a forensic examination by an FSL team from Bharatpur was conducted. The police have launched an investigation and said that it was yet to be confirmed whether the boy was sacrificed. Rajasthan state commission for protection of child rights have taken cognizance of the reports of boy’s sacrifice and asked the senior police officers to investigate the case and submit a report. Police officers including local circle officer and police station in-charge were at the spot till the reports last came in. The human sacrifice has come close on the heels of a similar one in Jodhpur. A man, identified as Nawab Ali Qureshi, slit the throat of her 4-year-old daughter after waking her from sleep in Pipar area of Jodhpur. After the cops arrested him for the murder of the girl earlier this month, he made a shocking revelation about his motive. He told the police that he wanted to sacrifice to Allah something dearest to her during the holy month of Ramadan.
