Blackmagic: Girl rescued in Mandya

Mahadev, a groundnut vendor near Holalu cirlce in Mandya, his son Manjunath, priest Nageshappa (accused of practising black magic), and his Assistant Prabhakar are the accused. The parents of the girl took her to graveyard on the pretext to cure the girl of her fever, on the advice of the priest.  Speaking to Deccan Herald, Deputy Superintendent of Police Channabasavanna said that the father of the girl and the priest revealed during primary investigation that there was no intention of sacrificing the girl.

As there is no law to act upon black magic, they were arrested on charges of gathering at the graveyard. Remnants of a chicken were found on the spot. Mandya West Police have registered  a case.
