Bhanamathi ‘victim’ girl’s skull found
DH News Service Gulbarga:
The police have recovered the skull of the six-year-old Salitha on Friday, who was reportedly killed by the practitioners of ‘bhanamathi’ (witch craft) at Khajuri in Aland taluk last month.

According to police, three suspects had been arrested by them a few days ago with respect to the murder of the girl. Based on the interrogation of these suspects, the police on Friday found the skull of the girl in Aland town. However, the police did not disclose as from where exactly the skull was recovered.

It may be recalled here that the head-less body of Salitha was found in a field near Khajuri on November 10. Along with the head, several parts of her body were missing.

Moreover, of the three ‘bhanamathi’ cases reported in the district during last one year, two of them being in Aland taluk, this is the first case wherein the suspects have been caught with evidence.

Last year, a five-year-old girl was killed barbarously at Honnakiranagi village in Gulbarga taluk. And in April this year, a seven-year-old girl was killed at Mataki village in Aland taluk, reportedly by the practitioners of ‘bhanamathi’.
