← Parents sacrifice 4-yr-old girl to become rich

The article was scary, but the last line was by far the worst:

Barely a couple of days back a nine- year-old girl was buried alive by her own uncle in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda district to please the goddess so that he could become rich.

In other words: this wasn't a one-time occurence. Just think about that for a second, and wonder how many of these kids we just don't hear about.
