Man beheads granddaughter for good harvest

Bhubaneswar: In a gruesome incident, a man chopped off the head of his nine-year-old granddaughter to woo "Mother Earth" for a good harvest this kharif season. Traditional belief has it that human sacrifice on Akshaya Tritiya translates into a good harvest.

With this belief, Rajesh Hembram, 55, a farmer, beheaded his nine-year-old granddaughter Berenika Kandulana with an axe on Sunday afternoon and collected her blood in a steel pot. The incident took place at Adapathar village in Sambalpur district.
Akshaya Trutiya marks the beginning of the kharif season. Preparations for the famous Ratha Yatra also begin from this day.
