Garhwa (Jharkhand): In a hair-raising incident of superstition reported from Jharkhand’s Garhwa area, a woman was killed after an exorcism was carried out by a tantrik couple. The victim’s family called a tantric to treat her because she was unwell for past few weeks.
The tantric couple, Aalam Devi and Satyendra Oran perforated the victim Rudni Devi’s body with a trident and gouged out her eyes while trying to treat her.

Instead of consulting a doctor, the victim’s parents took Rudni Devi to the tantrik instead. The tantric couple allegedly performed black magic and justified the act saying Rudni had been overpowered by an evil force. They then started punching holes into Rudni’s body with their trident. Her eyes were also gouged out. The already sick woman could not bear the assault and passed away.
