                    Shocking. Both should be tried in a fast track Court and awarded death sentence without delay.

                          People need to be educated about these Tantrik and Baba type thugs and law enforcement should track and punish them to maximum extent possible....................... As far as the muslim sounding names of tantrik is concerned, it should be clear that and kind of sorcery, witchcraft or black magic is not allowed in Islam. It is counted among the most grave and big sins like rape and murder.

                                    No words to condemn the heinous crime.lt;br/gt;Can't even imagine the physical pain, the mental agony, the utter helplessness the girl child had gone through before that innocent life was cut short.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Such cases need to be tried in superfast track courts.lt;br/gt;I am sure their act calls for death sentence.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;The state education, social welfare, and tribal affairs departments need to come together to chalk out a multi-prong strategy to create awareness among the mes against supersious beliefs.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Scores of women and men have been killed ( even burnt alive) on suspect of being witches.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Can't imagine such incidents do happen in this 21st century.
