PRAYAGRAJ: It was Safdar Ali’s belief that he could revive the dead using sorcery that cost a tailor and his three-year-old son their lives in Kaushambi. Safdar, his wife Noor, sister-in-law Gulnaz and daughter Anas were arrested on Saturday for the alleged murder of Vakeel and his son Arham, under Pipri police station, in Chayal area of the district.
The father-son duo were found dead in their home on Friday, while Vakeel’s wife Gulnaz was found unconscious in another room of the house. Vakeel was a tailor by profession.
SP (Kaushambi) Abhinandan said, “Police had found items like lemons and amulets at the crime scene which had indicated the use of black magic. During interrogation, Safdar alias Bablu confessed that he had killed Vakeel and Arham as part of a sorcery ritual. He also said that Vakeel’s wife Gulnaz was also a party to the crime. The sorcery rituals had been going on for four days and the father-son duo were kept without food and water.”
According to police, Safdar had been staying with Vakeel’s family for three days before the twin murders came to light.
Safdar said that he believed he could revive the two with black magic, but fled the house after he failed to do so. Based on Safdar’s confession, police then also arrested Gulnaz. They also recovered the knife used in the crime, police added.
