– Two Indian exorcists torched a 22-year-old pregnant woman with hot tongs to "save her"
– Her husband organized this ritual, because he had been wishing for a son to born
- Police are investigating the macabre incident
The incident happened in the Indian village Samogar. Villagers told police already had a daughter and was carrying another girl. But her in-law husband had been always wanted a son.
That’s why he invited two tantriks – so called Indian doctors, e.i. exorcists – who supposed to “heal” his wife. They said she was under the influence of some evil spirits which had to be exorcised.
The woman was taken to a desolate spot along the Yamuna bank and sand rubbed all over her body before being branded with hot tongs.
When the woman died her family had run away, but villagers could hold tantriks and called the police. Both of them were arrested that night.
