Bissam Cuttack: An incident that will turn out to be a shocker and appear outlandish to the modern man and the scientific community, teachers of a government-run school in Odisha's tribal-dominated Rayagada district had to call a local exorcist to cure some girl students who were "possessed".
As per reports, five girls studying in classes 7 and 8 of the Government Upper Primary School of Chatikona today started behaving irrationally after having their lunch at the school.
These students who were playing under a banyan tree in the school campus after having their lunch exhibited uncanny behaviour.
They vomited and danced in a strange manner after coming back to their classrooms.
The teachers then hired the local exorcist to cure the "possessed" girls.
The girls were cured after the conduct of pujas and chanting of mantras by the exorcist, the reports added.
The girls were later handed over to their guardians by the school's teachers.
However, two more girls started behaving irrationally after they came under the same banyan tree.
The villagers called another exorcist to cure the "possessed" girls.
But as the health condition of one these girls got serious, the teachers of the school called a 108 ambulance and got her shifted to the Government Hospital here.
