A priest who was supposedly casting out devils from a woman flogged her till she fainted.
According to reports, the woman’s family had taken her to the temple for the exorcism in Karnataka state, India.
They said she was acting strange and they suspected that she may have been possessed.
The uncomfortable footage begins with the lady crying as she sits in a temple. A priest then comes out of the inner room with a whip in his hand.
He grabs the woman’s hair and starts to whip her as she begs for mercy.
He then says a few things to the woman, pats on her head and pushes her softly as she faints in the end.
Exorcism is the spiritual practice of evicting demons from a person or place believed to be possessed.
