A 14-year-old girl from Sainamaina Municipality-10 of Rupandehi district died allegedly due to the excessive torture inflicted by a faith healer under the pretext of treating her.

The girl who was suffering from typhoid and an ear ailment passed away during the ‘healing’ ritual conducted by the local faith healer named Soniya Reshmi on March 4. The incident came to light when a video of the brutal ritual where the girl can be seen in immense pain started circulating on social media.

The District Police Office in Rupandehi issued a statement on Saturday stating that a detailed investigation is underway into the incident. “The accused faith healer, her mother and 15 others have been detained for investigation,” said Inspector Deepak Kunwar, the spokesperson of the district police office. The police are deeply concerned about the viral video showing physical torture being inflicted on the ailing girl, said Kunwar.

The victim’s family took her to the faith healer on the evening of March 4 after her condition did not improve even after taking medicines from a local pharmacy and a hospital.
