A 'vampire cannibal' is on the run after allegedly butchering his dying mum with an axe and drinking her blood.
Suspected killer Dilip Yadav, 27, is said to have hacked his mum's body to bits before throwing the parts onto a fire at their home.
He reportedly attacked 50-year-old Sumariya after blaming her for wrecking his marriage.
Her superstitious son also branded her a witch who caused the early deaths of his dad and brother near Korba, India.
A witness said she cowered in fear for her own life as she watched the gruesome bloodbath unfold in the village of Ramakachhar.
“I was shivering in terror and pressed myself against a wall as this beastly act was going on,” shocked Samiran Yadav told cops.
She said she crept close to their house after hearing “strange noises.”
And she froze in horror as she watched Yadav bludgeoning his mother on the head, neck and breasts with a hatchet, she told police.
Then he started licking blood oozing from Sumariya’s wounds as she took her last breaths, she added.
Yadav reportedly took her body inside their home and chopped it into small pieces before throwing them into a fire.
Samiran then fled to her home but could not raise enough courage to tell anyone about the New Year’s Eve orgy of violence until now.
It was finally reported to police as an “incident of cannibalisation,” the Times of India reports.
Forensic experts are said to have found ashes and charred bones at the “house of horrors” along with splatters of blood all over the walls and floor.
Officers also recovered chunks of human flesh and a blood-drenched axe.
They believe Yadav killed his mother as a human sacrifice after finding black magic books.
Cop Jaiprakash Badhai admitted colleagues were stunned when Samiran turned up at their station to report cannibalism.
A widespread hunt is on for Yadav after he disappeared from the area.
Neighbours claimed he was heavily influenced with sorcery and often spoke about human sacrifices.
