65-year-old Robert Lakra and his wife Colestina Lakra (60) were blamed for the sudden death of cows, buffaloes and other animals over the past couple of months at Puro village. An anonymous source reports the incident:
“On Monday morning, around 15-20 youths of the village caught hold of the elderly couple and dragged them to the panchayat meeting. No one was ready to hear anything from the couple and after discussion of nearly half-an-hour they forced them to eat human excreta and drink their own urine,”
Latehar SP Kranti Kumar confirmed the incident and said couple were rescued and are under protection of police.
