Chilling in Chittorgarh: 12 graves dug, 2 heads missing


Police suspect tantric activity, local Muslims fear work of communal elements This is spooky as it gets. At least a dozen graves have been dug up in the graveyards of Begu and Nandwai, in Rajasthan’s Chittorgarh district, since May 11, with the latest incident occurring sometime late this Wednesday night. In each of the three cases, the incident took place in the intervening night between Wednesday and Thursday, and seven graves dug up were of deceased whose names began with ‘S’. Heads of three bodies were severed from their torsos, and two were found missing, along with the headstones. While the police and district administration suspect it is handiwork of people involved in tantric activities or black magic, people from the minority community have begun protests and believe it could be a ruse to stoke up communal tension. Hundreds of locals staged a protest at the local bus station and blocked the road for a few hours Thursday.
