An Occultist from Bihar has sent the Begusarai authorities an application seeking permission for human sacrifice to propitiate his Deity.
The black magic occultist claimed that human sacrifice is not a crime and he is going to sacrifice his son, whom he says is the avatar of “Ravana”
Surendra Prasad Singh, who lives in Mohanpur Pahadpur village under Mofussil Police Station area, wrote the letter to Sub Divisional Officer (Sadar), Begusarai on January 29.
Screenshots of the purported letter have gone viral on social media, but the SDO Sanjiv Kumar Chaudhary said he had not received it.
The letter has been drafted on the letterhead of an unknown organization “Bindu Maa Manav Kalyan Sanstha”, which Singh claims to head. He says it is registered under the Societies Registration Act.
A video clip in which he is speaking about his letter to local journalists has also been doing rounds.
Residents of the village say Singh is known as “Pagla baba” (crazy godman) because of his wayward behaviour which includes often walking around naked or carrying a human skull in his hand.
The villagers said he is in the habit of doing things to get publicity and grab attention.
His plea for human sacrifice has shaken the villagers and people are scared of his crazy activities.
