A newborn died after a group of eunuchs snatched him from the mother’s lap and started dancing, demanding money from the family, police said. The incident took place on Friday in West Bengal’s Jhargram district.

The twins were born to Chandan Khiladi, a resident of Uttar Shilda in Binpur police station area, on December 4.

One of them had complications in his heart and was admitted to the Jhargram Superspeciality Hospital, locals said. The boy was released from hospital on Wednesday after 20 days in the hospital. That is when the three eunuchs came to their home, police said.

They demanded Rs 11,000 from the family and after being refused, the three started abusing the family, police said.

They then snatched the boy from his mother’s lap and started dancing with the newborn. The family then agreed to pay them Rs 2,000, police said.

In the meantime, locals gathered near Khiladi’s house and stopped the three eunuchs from fleeing. Police arrived at the spot and rescued the three, officials said.

They have been detained and further investigations are underway.

Eunuchs, who make a living by dancing and singing at houses where kids are born, are often accused of extracting money forcibly.
