In an appalling incident, a video clip has surfaced on social media recently showing a tantrik performing a religious ritual on a pregnant woman at the Bundelkhand Medical College in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh.
In the video, the exorcist can be seen reciting mantras amid chaos. He eventually slaps the eight-month-pregnant woman to make her free from the evil spirits possessed by her. The incident reportedly took place on Saturday.
26-year-old Archana was admitted to the hospital eight days ago by her husband Bhanu Chadar. After her condition worsened on Friday night, Bhanu decided to call a tantrik from a nearby village.
After the tantrik reached the hospital premises on Saturday afternoon, Archana was brought to the hospital corridor and the tantrik allegedly continued to torture her for the next one hour. She was subjected to psychological torment and was slapped multiple times by the exorcist.
Afterwards, she was taken to the maternity ward. Nobody from the hospital came to her rescue.
The exorcist reportedly told Bhanu that her wife was possessed by four evil spirits. three of the spirits were from the hospital, the fourth belonged to his elder brother who had died a few years ago.
Continuous reports of the appalling healthcare system in the country are surfacing all over the media, such incidents are happening in broad daylight and no one is coming up to rescue the victims.
