Narad told them that she is not well. The youths replied that they are priests and have supernatural power with them. “They said to Narad that they already knew that his mother is not well and hence asked him just to check,” said police.

The youths told that somebody has done black magic on her mother’s gold ornaments and thus every time she wore, she fell ill. Giving a solution to this, the duo asked him to bring all gold ornaments of his mother to them and they will perform some rituals on them to destroy the black magic.

The tricksters then asked Narad to close his eyes and chant a mantra ‘Hari ohm’. AS soon as Narad closed his eyes, they fled with the ornaments.

Narad then narrated the incident to his parents and reported to Ajni police.
