Nanu a tantric!

Shock and anger still are simmering in Rongapara a day after bizarre incident where Nanu Mirdha in the Tarajuli Tea Estate beheaded Sanatan Bag at his residence.

Local residents suspect that the beheading could be a case of child sacrifice as idols of gods and goddesses and other religious material were recovered from the place where the boy's body was found. Locals allege that the accused was a tantrik.

When the shocking news started spreading like wild fire, the local residents in large number raided his residence, dragged him out and lynched him.
