Tantrik-Guided Parents Kill Their Son

A doctor couple in Rohtak near Chandigarh have ended up with the life of their younger son on their hands.

The mother , Dr Promila Malik, a professor in Pandit Bhagat Dayal Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) believed that a transfusion of blood from their younger and more talented son to their elder one, who was academically mediocre could make the latter more bright. The operation, however, went horribly wrong and the younger sibling died of excessive bleeding.


Rohtak police made a startling revelation on Wednesday, after investigating into the incident in which Piyush (12) was killed and his brother Abhishek and their mother Promila were found injured in their house in the PGIMS campus on October 1. According to them, the mother was guided by a 'guru' or tantrik who used to appear in her dreams.

The police arrested the mother and father; Dr Ashok Malik, who is employed in a hospital at Amritsar. In addition, the police seized material like mustard and kerosene oil, incense sticks and matchboxes, indicating that tantrik rituals had been performed in the house. Superintendent of police Haneef Quraishi said some family member could be involved in the incident. "We have interrogated the father and the family's 14-year-old domestic help who revealed that Promila had faith in the magical remedies of a tantrik. We have found blood-soaked syringes and needles", he was reported.

Investigations revealed that while Piyush, a class VI student, excelled in studies, 18-year-old Abhishek, who was preparing for medical entrance examinations, was an average student. The couple was desperate to get him enrolled in an MBBS course.

The superstitious mother reportedly saw a 'guru' in her dream, who advised her to transfuse the blood of Piyush to Abhishek for his sure admission to a medical college. He also directed her to spill oil and burn something to create smoke in the house during the transfusion. The SP added that though the father was well aware of the plan, he was in Delhi when the incident took place. "While Promila has been booked under Section 304 of IPC, causing death not amounting to murder, her husband has been booked under section 120 B for criminal conspiracy," the SP informed.

The officer added that an injured Abhishek had told the police earlier that three masked men had attacked them in the house, but that the police were not swallowing that alibi.
