Chilling Incident of Occult Ritual in Uttar Pradesh

In the heartland of India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, a chilling incident of superstition and blind faith recently unfolded. In the Basti district, a mother committed an act of unimaginable violence against her own flesh and blood in the name of an occult ritual.

The Terrifying Act

Geeta, a 33-year-old woman, allegedly inflicted grievous harm on her two-month-old daughter while performing what is believed to be an occult ritual. The infant was immediately rushed to the hospital by family members, where she is now reported to be in a stable condition.

Mother’s Mental State

The woman’s husband has voiced concerns about his wife’s mental health, informing officials that she is unstable and has a deep belief in occult practices. This shocking incident has now brought the issue of mental health and superstition in rural areas to the forefront.

Investigation Underway

The local police are currently investigating this harrowing incident. Based on the complaint filed by the family, the authorities will decide on the subsequent course of action. The entire village is in a state of shock and disbelief, praying for the speedy recovery of the infant.

Other Occurrences of Superstitious Practices

This incident is not an isolated one. Cases of “occult practices” are often reported from various parts of India, with children frequently being the victims of such heinous acts. In the recent past, similar incidents were reported from Maharashtra’s Nashik district and Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich district, where children were murdered as part of superstitious rituals.


This incident is yet another grim reminder of the dark side of superstition and blind faith in India. As we progress as a nation, it is imperative to spread awareness and education to eradicate such harmful practices from society.
