Daijiworld Media Network – Chikkamagaluru (EP) 

Chikkamagaluru, Jun 19: In a heart wrenching incident, a father killed his one and half month old daughter falling prey to superstition at Boochenahalli in Chikkamagaluru. 

Manjunath (27) is the accused person. He killed his daughter after an astrologer told him that she would be disastrous for his future. 

Manjunath said that he was unwell and slept next to the infant, while the mother went outside to wash utensils. He took the opportunity to squeeze the infant’s neck and killed her. He later raised a commotion stating that the infant was bleeding from the nose. 

The mother and the neighbours immediately called for an ambulance. Though the doctors rushed to the house in the ambulance, the infant had died. 

A serious injury was noticed on the infant’s neck. Seeing this, the mother and locals grew suspicious that Manjunath killed the baby. Later it was learnt the he killed the baby as per the astrologer’s advice. 

Police who arrived from Chikkamagaluru police station conducted investigations and arrested Manjunath. A search for the astrologer is in progress.

    India becoming digital is possible some point in time but some people's blind belief in astrology, black magic & Evil spirits will not change easily.
    Our government must work on bringing a bill/law banning all such practices and punish both the performer and its followers if proven wrong.

    Very true. When activists are trying to educate people against superstition, they are murdered because they claim it is anti-hindu. Who will bell the cow, let them face the consequences. No need to break ones head.

    Need a strong anti superstition law. Otherwise like this lot of innocent people will be sacrificed. Previous CM Siddu tried to bring this law but did not get enough support.

    We are in the 21st century and still locked into ignorance even though our country is taking big strides in placing itself in the map of developed countries. In spite of advancing in various fields such as economic, science and technology, we are still lagging behind socially and are not able to remove the curtain of ignorance from our mind. This type of age-old ignorance is still widespread even among the educated lots in India, which is because the education we get in schools is to make ourselves to compete in the job-market and not to come out of the shackles of blind belief.
    What punishment the killer and the astrologer are going to get other than few years of imprisonment? I just wish the public kills the astrologer for misleading the child's father. If he is left unpunished, he would be disastrous for many ignorant people who go to him for his "guidance".

    There are only two spirits who rules this world,

    Before you seek help / guidance from third person make sure that what SPIRIT he is possessing.

    Hatred / Violence / Murder / Cheating are the few qualities of evil spirit.

    We all know what Good spirit is, Love , patience, helping nature etc.
