Punjab teen chops up minor's body

A 16-year old student from Ludhiana has been detained for reportedly killing a nine-year old boy, chopping his body into six pieces, eating the flesh and drinking the blood before dumping the body.

The minor victim, Deepu Kumar, had been missing since Monday. He also took out Kumar’s heart and threw it in the school premises. According to the police, the accused did this as he disliked going to school and wanted the institution to get a bad name. Police later recovered the heart from the  campus.

The police on Friday detained the boy, who is undergoing medical and psychological tests.
The accused, a Class VIII student, and the victim are children of migrant labourers and lived in the same neighbourhood. The incident came to light after the police examined CCTV footage from the locality, which showed the accused taking Deepu away. The accused lured the victim on the pretext of giving him kite strings. He took the victim to his house and strangled him, after which he chopped off his body parts, washed it in the bathroom and stuffed it in a sack before dumping it in a nearby vacant plot.

According to sources, the accused had ‘cannibalistic’ tendencies and often craved for human flesh, and would eat raw chicken. He even craved to eat his own limbs, they said.
