A WOMAN ‘possessed by evil spirits’ was lashed by her husband after she grew tired of walking in an attempt to exorcise a demon. (WARNING: upsetting content)
Shocking footage shows the moment her husband viciously beat her with a belt.
An occultist reportedly told the woman she must do a lap of Mandapura, a small village in Barmer, India, to evict the evil spirit.
When she slowed to a halt after growing tired, her husband took matters into his hands, whipping her with a belt.
Police said he was unhappy that she was not following the occultist’s orders.
In the disturbing clip, which was scared on social media, the woman is seen begging for mercy.
At one point, she falls on the dirt track and her superstitious spouse draws a line in the earth below her feet in view of villagers.
Police spokeswoman Saroj Choudhary said the married couple was identified and taken to the police station for questioning.
She had reportedly started her exorcising walk, but ended up getting ‘slippered’ with footwear after growing tired halfway around.
A family member then decided she should be hit with a belt and taken to the outskirts of the village.
The husband agreed, and the subsequent events were filmed and posted online.
Police said they were trying to find the occultist, who reportedly fled after the incident.
