An Indian cannibal

A 25-year-old Indian man has been arrested for cannibalism after villagers found him stealing body parts from pyres at a local cremation ground and eating them later, reports Indian Times.

According to a police detective, SN Singh, the man who has been identified as Akhilesh from Sultapur district, seem to be mentally ill and medical examinations will be carried to ascertain his status before any action is taken on him.

"Residents of Surajnagar villager informed us that the suspect, identified as Akhilesh from Sultanpur district, was involved in cannibalism. According to them, he was found eating human flesh from bodies at the local shamshan ghat. His family has been informed."

Singh added that family members told the police that Akhilesh left his parents' house in Sultanpur five years ago and his whereabouts have not been known since then.

A local man told the Times:

"Villagers had come here for the cremation of a body when they noticed this man getting too close to a burning pyre. When they chased him, he ran away and hid himself under a bedsheet inside a room at shamshan ghat.

When the people removed the bedsheet, there were human organs and flesh hidden under it."
