World’s youngest serial killer Amarjeet Sada.

Childhood and Early Signs of Trouble

Amarjeet Sada was born in 1998 in the village of Begusarai in Bihar, India. From an early age, he exhibited signs of behavioral issues. He was known to be aggressive and had a tendency to lash out at others. However, it’s unclear what may have caused these issues, as Sada’s family and community were not equipped to provide him with the necessary support.

Sada’s mother died in 2006 when he was just seven years old. It’s possible that this event may have further exacerbated his behavioral issues, as he reportedly struggled to cope with the loss.

The Murders

His first Victim

In 2007, Sada committed a series of murders that would shock the world. His first victim was his six-year-old cousin, whom he reportedly strangled while they were playing together. The boy’s body was found in a field near their house. When Amarjeet Sada’s mother went to the local market to buy vegetables, she left him in charge of his six-month-old cousin and another baby. As he looked at his cousin sleeping peacefully, something dark and sinister stirred inside him. At first, he began to pinch and slap one of the babies, reveling in the cries of pain and distress. But his actions soon turned even more sinister, as he put his hands around the infant’s throat and squeezed, relishing in the sound of the baby gasping for air and crying.

With a chilling laugh, Amarjeet continued to strangle the baby until it died. He then callously took a nearby brick and bludgeoned the baby’s head until it was nothing but a bloody pulp. Finally, he buried the infant under a blanket of grass and returned home as if nothing had happened.

2nd Victim

When Amarjeet’s mother learned about his first murder, she was shocked and didn’t know what to do. Later that evening, his father physically punished him for the horrific act, but it was too late. Instead of turning him over to the police, they made a grave mistake and covered up the crime, telling their aunt that the baby had died in an accident. We don’t know if the aunt believed their story, but for the time being, Amarjeet got away with murder.

Unfazed by the consequences of his actions, Amarjeet was soon ready for his next victim. One winter afternoon, his parents were taking a nap when he turned his attention to his eight-month-old sister. With a smile on his face, he gently lifted her from her crib and strangled her to death. His mother woke up to the faint cries of the baby and went to breastfeed her, but immediately realized the infant was dead. This second murder further cemented Amarjeet’s twisted and violent tendencies, and it would not be long before he struck again.

Wrong Decision By His Parents

Amarjeet’s mother was devastated upon realizing that her son had killed his own sister. When she confronted him about it, he admitted to the crime with a smile on his face, saying that he did it “just like that.” His parents were equally shocked and his father even physically punished him for his actions. The neighbors soon found out about the incident and urged Amarjeet’s parents to turn him over to the police, but they chose to cover up the crime and begged the neighbors to keep quiet about it.

Last and The End

Amarjeet’s third victim was a six-month-old baby girl named Khushboo who was not related to him. He spotted her sleeping in a stroller outside a local school while her mother, Chunchun Devi, was running some errands. Amarjeet snatched the baby and took her to a nearby mangrove forest where he smashed her face with a rock, killing her instantly. He then buried her in the grass and left the scene.

When Khushboo’s mother returned and found her baby missing, she raised the alarm. People searched for the baby and someone remembered seeing Amarjeet carrying her. The police took Amarjeet in for questioning, where he confessed to killing Khushboo in vivid detail. He also admitted to his earlier crimes of killing his six-month-old sister and his six-year-old cousin.

Finally, He was caught by police and confessed to all three killings. Despite his admission, Sada could not be charged with a crime under Indian law because he was just eight years old at the time.

His Confession to crime

When Inspector Shatrughan Kumar, the Officer in Charge (OIC) of the Bhagalpur police station in the Bihar state of India, asked Amarjeet Sada if he had killed Khushboo, Sada calmly replied, “Give me a packet of biscuits, and I will tell you.” The inspector was taken aback by Sada’s brazen attitude.

Rehabilitation and Release

After Sada’s arrest, he was sent to a children’s home for rehabilitation and psychological counseling for three years. The home was run by an NGO called the Sanstha Divine Life Society, which provided education and vocational training to children who had been in conflict with the law.

While at the children’s home, Sada received counseling and treatment for his behavioral issues. His case was closely monitored by child welfare authorities, who worked to ensure that he received the care he needed. In 2010, he was released from the home after completing his three-year term.

Current Whereabouts

After his release, Sada’s current whereabouts are unknown. Some reports suggest that he was adopted by a childless couple and given a new identity, while others claim that he was returned to his family and continues to live in their village.

Juvenile Justice in India

Sada’s case raises difficult questions about the criminal responsibility of children and the effectiveness of rehabilitation programs for young offenders. Some experts argue that Sada’s case highlights the need for better resources and treatment for children who exhibit violent tendencies.

It’s also worth noting that Sada’s case is not unique in India, where there is a growing problem of juvenile crime. According to government data, there were more than 30,000 cases of crimes committed by juveniles in India in 2019, ranging from theft and vandalism to rape and murder.
