An incident of body of a 2-month-old baby buried in a graveyard in this part of the national Capital gone missing has been reported.
It is understood that a few days after the boy died he was buried in a local graveyard near ITO Delhi Gate at about 3 pm. The next day on January 4 when family members turned up they found the body missing and graveyard dug.
Habib Khan, father of the baby, told Aaj Tak that next day when we visited the graveyard we found the body missing with the mat and clothe in which the body was wrapped. The slab was also removed, he said.
Khan suspects that the body must have been taken by people involved in magic. Aaj Tak team headed by Okhla-based journalist who visited the graveyard found some articles lying in the bush pointing towards the fact of magic work going on around.
The other theory doing the rounds is that dogs must have dragged the body. But a reporter who visited the spot said it was difficult to understand how come dogs would have removed the mud from the graveyard and then removed the heavy slab and done away with the body.
Family members have reported the incident to police.
The committee that takes care of the graveyard wants the whole incident to be probed and get to the depth of the incident. Moreover, a committee chief said two guards man the graveyard pointing towards the fact that the graveyard boundary wall is small and should be raised. Investigation is on in the incident.
