KOCHI/PATHANAMTHITTA: Two women, including one from Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu, were allegedly sacrificed as part of black magic in a village in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala and three people, including a couple were arrested in this connection, police said on Tuesday.

The two women, who had earned their daily bread selling lottery tickets on the streets here, were allegedly sacrificed by the accused to settle the financial issues of the couple and bring prosperity in their life, they said.

The chopped body parts of the deceased were exhumed from the premises of the couple’s house at Elanthoor village in Pathanamthitta later in the day.

According to police, the victims, said to be in their near 50s, had gone missing in September and June this year and the eventual probe, based on their phone details and tower locations, unravelled the story of sacrifice.

One of the women, from Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu, went missing on August 17, as per the complaint of her sister.
