The police have taken the parents in custody for questioning.

We are at a loss of words and the incident once again makes us question whether we are heading towards stone age? What kind of parents do that to their own child? We are in the 21st century but are still falling into the trap of such disgusting superstitions and are ready to kill anyone for monetary gains. People like Mahaveer and his wife don’t deserve a place in this society and should be served with the maximum possible punishment according to the law.
