Gurgaon: A six-month-old girl, who was abducted from here for being sacrificed, was rescued from Delhi, police said Monday.
The infant was abducted Saturday from her house near Pataudi Chowk.
"The minor was kidnapped by a 35-year-old man who planned to sacrifice her during the upcoming 'Navratras'," a senior police officer told IANS.
Accused Bablu, who is based in Delhi, is a labourer who often visited Gurgaon for work. He is yet to be arrested.
The victim's father is also a labourer and is known to the accused.
"A 'tantric' had advised Bablu to sacrifice a baby to remove hurdles in his getting married," police said.
The baby was rescued from a slum area in Delhi in a joint operation by the Haryana and Delhi Police.
"We are conducting raids to arrest the accused and the 'tantric'," police added.
