A witch doctor in India is under fire after an unfortunate woman died during a rather unsettling attempt at an exorcism. According to a local report, the sorcerer in question, named Sahida, had been contacted by the woman's husband after she had begun acting strangely for several days. While traditional doctors were unable to determine the cause of her odd behavior, Sahida declared that the woman, named Prameena, was afflicted with 'evil spirits' and, as 'luck' would have it, she just so happened to know how to cure her.
What followed sounds like a truly haunting incident as the witch doctor proceeded to place Prameena in a five-foot-deep pit and then filled the hole with dirt until she was buried up to her neck. Shortly thereafter, the allegedly-possessed woman began screaming that she was suffocating and begged to be released from the hole. Chillingly, her plaintive wails continued for an astounding two hours and, reportedly, hundreds of people, curious about all of the commotion, gathered to watch the unnerving scene as it unfolded.
