Thiruvananthapuram, Oct 21 (PTI) The shocking incident of ritualistic human sacrifice of two women in Kerala was allegedly an outcome of frustration caused by globalisation and efforts of some reactionary forces to bring back hollow and obsolete value systems, state Minister Dr R Bindu believes.

The Social Justice Minister claimed while such incidents were occurring across India, it came to light quickly in the southern state as the public are more alert and vigilant.

"You should not see it as something prevalent only in Kerala. As the society here is more alert and vigilant, such instances are coming to light quickly here. In other states of the country where superstitious practices are rampant, no one even comes to know of such incidents happening there.
