In a proposition of finding some hidden fortune underneath his own house, a man of Khurd Maru village in Badosarai area, Barabanki, allegedly beat his 10-year-old child to death as a basis of sermon scapegoat.
The man was instructed by the diviner that there was some hidden treasure in his household whose way could only be directed if he offered his daughter’s life as a part of the sermon sacrifice. To this, the culprit readily approved. Him, the diviner and another man grouped up to beat the 10-year-old girl severely, serving her death.
The girl’s mother barged in trying to stop the crime but she was beaten up by her husband as well. The girl’s body was later laid to rest underneath their house. All the indicted people were held captive after a police complaint was filed by the child’s maternal grandmother. After the Police responded to the case, the body was scouted up from the ground and sent for autopsy.
While examining, several spots of injury were found on the girl’s body. The maternal grandmother of the victim who complained stated that her son-in-law supposedly sacrificed the life of his daughter as a sermon offering under the influence of some sorcerer.

He later buried the child’s dead body without any hint.
