INDIA – The Bihar Police has arrested a godman who used to trample upon infants to supposedly cure them of their illnesses.
Baba Jamun Yadav used to carry out his bizarre practice in the villages of the state’s Katihar region. He would make infants lie on the ground and stand on them with his bare feet.
Shouting ‘Jai Ho’, Yadav would keep one foot on the child’s thighs and with the other press hard on the neck, risking the child’s death from suffocation.
Action was taken against Yadav after Headlines Today exposed the barbaric practice on Tuesday. Police said Yadav had been put behind bars at the Barari police station and an inquiry had begun.
Yadav had tricked the villagers into believing that he had divine healing powers. They worshipped him and brought their children to him to be cured
