Haridwar, January 25

A seven-year-old boy, suffering from blood cancer, was allegedly dipped in the Ganga river in Haridwar until he suffocated to death, police said on Wednesday.

Police said the boy’s parents, who had brought him to the Har Ki Pauri, were hoping for a "miracle cure" after the doctors said the child would lose the battle against cancer.

The superstitious parents thought if their son would take a dip in the holy Ganga, he would be cured of the disease," City Superintendent of Police Swatantra Kumar said.

"The aunt of the boy dipped him in the water in front of his parents. The child screamed at first, but later his cries stopped. Bystanders rushed him to the hospital, where he was declared dead," he said.

The police officer said action would be initiated once the post-mortem report is received.
