Horrific Killings: Mother sacrifices 2 daughters hoping to bring them back next day

In a bizarre incident linked to occult practices, two young girls were killed by their mother with a hope to bring them back from the dead. The incident happened in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh where educated parents of the girls, believed to be highly superstitious, thought of relieving the girls of the evil spirits that possessed them. 
Alekhya (27) and Sai Divya (23) were found in red saris, lying in blood with their heads bashed in. They had been killed allegedly with dumbbells by parents identified as V. Purushothham Naidu and V Padmaja. The family appeared to have participated in a ritual before the murders on Sunday evening.
“The scene of crime suggests some rituals were carried out; the women were clad in a red saree and the parents appeared to be highly delusional,” police officer said. When the police reached the spot late last night, the parents, both highly educated, reportedly claimed that “they could revive their daughters if they were given time till tonight.”
Alekhya used to work at Bhopal’s Indian Institute of Forest Management and had recently resigned to prepare for civil services exam. Her sister Sai Divya was a graduate and was pursuing music at a Chennai-based A.R. Rahman institute.
The sisters had returned home during the lockdown and no one had been allowed inside the house for months, the police said quoting neighbours. The house is worth crores and photographs of the family suggest that they belong to a wealthy and educated crowd and hence, it is even more shocking that this incident came to light in such a family. 
Apparently, Purushotham is an associate professor of Chemistry from Government Degree College in Madanapalle, Padmaja who reportedly is a Gold Medallist in MSc Mathematics, is the correspondent of Masterminds IIT Talent School in Chitoor.
The police have still not confirmed whether it is a case of human sacrifice going by the way it is done, but since parents are not mentally stable, it is still under investigation.
