“Three years ago we converted to Christianity. From that day, the people in the village are angry with us. They have threatened to kill us. We had also complained to the police about it, but the case was dismissed. In the meantime, they took my son to the forest and killed him and buried him.” Madkami was quoted as saying by The Quint.

However, the local police is seeing this as a case of superstition. Malkangiri SP Rishikesh says that superstition seems to be the main reason in this case, and if there is any other angle, then the police will also look into it.
