The city was shocked when news of a 3-year old girl's murder came to light as she was flung from the 7th floor of a building in Colaba by her father's friend.

As per the investigation, the accused - Anil Chaugani - had visited Morocco as he felt he was falling prey to black magic. Apparently, a person in Morocco told him that he can get rid of black magic only when he sacrifices twins.

The incident took place on Saturday afternoon where Chaugani, who was a school friend of the victim's father, visited the family. The twins were Shreya and Shanaya and Chugani took away Shanaya along with him on the pretext of playing with her. The domestic help also accompanied Shanaya and after seeing the domestic help, the accused panicked and locked the door behind him and flung the kid outside the window. The kid was rushed to the hospital where she died later that night.
