India tea plantation workers face cannibalism charges

India tea plantation workers face cannibalism charges

At least five tea plantation workers in north-east India are accused of killing their boss and his wife and eating parts of their bodies, officials said on Wednesday.

In late December, hundreds of tea workers in Assam state surrounded the plantation owner’s bungalow and then set it on following a two-week long dispute with the management.

Investigators said that at least five plantation workers ate the flesh of the tea planter and his wife after they were brutally killed.
