Parents kill 2 daughters in Hyderabad
In what was claimed to be a case of human sacrifice, a former college principal and his wife allegedly killed their two daughters, who had completed their post-graduation, to death with a blunt like object at their residence. The DSP said that they appeared to be in a trance and were suffering from psychological issues.
According to the government officials, the accused couple Padmaja and Purushottam Naidu were both in their mid-50s and killed their daughters Alaikhya, 27, and Sai Divya, 22.
“On Sunday night, after the rituals were completed, the parents first killed their elder daughter in the ritual room itself, by stuffing her mouth with a small copper tumbler and later smashing her head with a dumbbell. Later, they took the younger daughter to her room on the first floor of the house and stabbed her to death with a spear repeatedly,” the police official said.
During the investigation, the accused have confessed to have committed a human sacrifice. After narrating the story, the couple requested the police to come back a couple days later to see the daughters alive after completing the second half of the ritual.
