Four persons were arrested for allegedly killing a four-year-old boy for sorcery in Kalahandi district of Orissa.
The accused were identified as the boy's paternal uncle Jarbi Gahir, a priest Kumuda Sarangi, a sorcerer Dayalu Dora and a villager Parameswar Dora.
Police said the boy Ajit Gahir had gone missing on Nov. 2 from Nuagaon village in the district.
Three days later, police recovered his body from the nearby Kunkad forest.
"We had launched a search operation for the boy after his parents lodged a missing complaint but we couldn't locate him despite our best efforts,” said police official Sanjay Kumar Mandal.
He said that some villagers, who had gone to the forest, informed us about body parts being strewn in the forest.
Further investigation revealed that the boy was killed for witchcraft, he added.
Mandal said the murder was pre-planned and the body parts of the boy were used for witchcraft.
"The accused have confessed to the crime. They had picked up the boy from near his house and strangulated him to death on the outskirts of the village. The body parts were then dumped in the forest," the police official said.
