Grave robber shocks cops, claims he did sorcery with dead body to free Sasikala from prison

The self-proclaimed black magician arrested last week requested Tamil Nadu police to give him more time so that he can complete the black magic process he has been at to free AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala from the Bengaluru prison.

Rajaraghavan aka Karthikeyan was arrested last week at Perambalur for stealing a dead body and indulging in sorcery along with his wife. The incident came to light after his neighbours noticed fowl odour from his house.

Cops confiscated the body of a 21-year-old girl who died on 18th January. The body was in a partially decayed state covered in a cloth and placed inside a coffin. Karthikeyan confessed to have performed black magic with the body for many clients including politicians.

Startling the police, Karthikeyan claimed that he had almost completed a circle of sorcery to release Sasikala Natarajan, AIADMK's imprisoned General Secretary, from Parapanna Agrahara in Bengaluru and pleaded with the cops to give him a week's time to complete the process.

Taken aback by Karthikeyan's weird plea, cops had to take a while to understand what he was asking for. In fact some of them were pretty scared to touch the 20 different skulls, black dye, metal pieces engraved with magic spells and scary looking voodoo dolls recovered from his house fearing black magic.

Earlier, Karthikeyan claimed that he did sorcery to communicate with the other dimension but later upon investigation, Karthikeyan said that he was conducting dark magic sitting on top of the stolen dead body and was on the verge to discover the secrets about 'swapping souls' from one body to another.

Karthikeyan also pleaded with the cops to take him back to his house and give him some more time to finish the pending magic and said if he doesn't, it might cause grave danger to many. He also informed the police that he was on the verge to give a human sacrifice.

The self-proclaimed black magician said he possesses over 2,000 souls and that he can use those to harm "anyone".

Cops retrieved a number of passport-size photographs of young girls from his house. "He calls himself a sorcerer but we doubt that he could have psychological issues as well. Anyways he has scared the entire lot of cops here", remarked an officer on the spot.

Karthikeyan was arrested for illegally obtaining a dead body, along with his wife Nasima and three accomplices. The cops are yet to find out whether more officials from the government cemetery are involved.
