Just how far would you go to gain wealth? Would you cross any boundary to secure riches for yourself? One woman in India might have done the unthinkable.
Manju Devi, 35, resident of the Siswan village in the Maharajganj district of Uttar Pradesh, northern India, might have had big dreams of becoming rich, but the way she allegedly went about getting those riches is shocking.
According to Qatar Living, police said a supposed "godman" had been visiting Devi's home for the past several weeks.
Devi allegedly sliced the tongue off of her neighbor's four-month-old baby girl on Wednesday after the godman told her she would become rich after the deed.
The baby was found by locals lying near a ceremonial fireplace in Devi's home.
Police inspector H.C. Bharti said on Thursday: "The girl was bleeding profusely at the time she was recovered from Manju Devi's house. She has been hospitalized and her condition is stated to be critical."
Devi and her family have fled to avoid the police.
