Some drug addicts in the Boudha area are sucking human blood from child victims, according to street children who have been victimised. Nil Kantha Sedai (name changed) is one of them. He says, "When they are overdosed and have nothing to eat, they suck blood from our bodies." Showing his cheek that has been pierced with a blade, Sedai said the addicts sucked from his wound for 10 minutes.
Sedai named addict 'Naran' and others as the culprits. A narcotics control official thinks the addicts turn to being vampires to get a high when they can't find drugs. Addicts extort money from street children who earn from selling plastic and glass for recycling.
