In June 2007, Amardeep Sada, also known as Amarjeet Sada, became one of the world's creepiest children who belong in horror movies after news spread of his offenses. He took the lives of multiple children in his village in India. He shocked locals and people worldwide as reports of his horrifying actions spread quickly. 

However, Sada's youth, in conjunction with how despicable his actions were, caused his story to gain notoriety. Some of the details about the case remain shrouded in mystery. Despite this, some very interesting facts are available, along with numerous photographs of the young killer.

All Of His Victims Were Babies - And One Was His Sister

Sada started killing approximately one year before he was finally turned over to authorities. During a one-year time frame, he killed at least three times. All of his victims were babies from the local village, with the oldest being his eight-month-old sister.

It's unknown why he targeted babies, but it seems that it was due to their small size and inability to defend themselves. 

His Parents Covered For Him

The Sadas refrained from reporting the child. Considering the fact that Amardeep started his spree with his cousin and sister, it's hard to understand why his family covered up the first two deaths.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened because the Sadas chalked up the situation to a family matter. As a result, a third baby lost her life. 

He Asked For Biscuits After Getting Turned Into The Police

Sada's odd request during police questioning is a prime indicator that he didn't take the charges seriously. When asked why he killed three babies, Sada smiled and asked for biscuits. In India, biscuits and cookies are very closely related.

In other words, he wanted a sweet treat while recounting his offenses. 

He Didn't Show Remorse For His Actions

Sada's family may have attempted to cover up his offenses, but this clearly didn't convince him that he had done anything wrong. When local villagers began asking questions, he was reportedly happy to talk about how he did it. He even helped villagers recover one of the bodies. Sada provided graphic details about his third killing, saying, "She was sleeping in the school. I took her a little away, and killed her with a stone and buried her."

Local police found his words to be true, as they discovered the body of six-month-old Kushboo in a shallow grave that Sada had shown them. A quick look at the corpse confirmed what the young boy had said - he had taken a brick to the baby's head and bashed her skull in until she died.
