It was us British that eliminated the thugge sect that conducted human sacrifice.
Looks like either us brits should of stayed in India longer or the indians are reverting back to there old barbaric ways now we are long gone.

Deceased family members were traditionally cooked and eaten, which was thought to help free the spirit of the dead. Females and children usually consumed the brain, the organ in which infectious prions were most concentrated, thus allowing for transmission of kuru. Thus, the disease was more prevalent among women and children.
