In a shameful inhuman act, she was dragged by her hair and slapped number of times during the exorcism.
Bhanu Chadar, women’s husband when confronted said that the tantrik had successful removed “four evil spirits from her body” in the light of the fact Archana had given birth to stillborns on two earlier occasions. The exorcist reportedly told him that while three of the spirits were from the hospital, the fourth belonged to his elder brother who had died a few years ago.
However, a doctor from the hospital, Dr JN Soni, denied any such incident on the hospital’s premises. “No such thing happened at the medical college. However, I have ordered an enquiry and the CCTV footage will be investigated. Appropriate action will be taken after the probe,” he said.
