Nine persons have been arrested for allegedly attempting to kill an 18-year-old girl for human sacrifice on the belief of finding some hidden treasure in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district, police said on Wednesday.

The police have arrested the victim’s father, a tantrik and seven others over the incident that took place in Babulgaon tehsil on Monday, an official said.

One of the accused, who had two daughters, allegedly sexually exploited and threatened the eldest, superintendent of police Yavatmal Dilip Bhujbal Patil said.

The girl, who used to stay at a relative’s place for studies, had recently come to her house in Madni village, he said.
