Based on a tip-off by Animal Welfare Board of India, a 40-year-old married man identified as Kanhaya allegedly was arrested earlier this week for allegedly killing an owl to use it for black magic in order to attract another woman that he liked in Delhi’s Sultanpuri area.
According to the reports, a raid was conducted and police found the owl’s carcass in a cooler in his house, said a senior police official, adding that the accused has been evasive during questioning and has been saying different things.
However, the accused later showed the cops a Youtube video tutorial that purportedly taught him the tantric rituals on how to sacrifice an owl so that one could hypnotise any person they want to.
“He said he liked a girl and he wanted that she should be attracted towards him. He said he procured the owl to perform the rituals he saw in the video. The accused is married with three children and even his family was aware about him sacrificing the owl after Diwali,” said the officer.
The post-mortem report of the owl said it died due to multiple puncture wounds.
The accused has also been evasive as to how he got the owl.
He has been claiming that he found the owl lying injured and brought it home but it has been found that the owl only had injuries that were sustained during the attack by the accused.
