A man has sucked the blood of 207 goats sacrificed at a Hindu temple.
Sisir Das, a practitioner of Hindu occult rituals, drank the goats’ blood at the Kali temple in Bengal’s Midnapore district over the past four days.
The United News of India says blood sucking runs in the sorcerer’s family and that his thirst for blood “remains insatiable”
Mr Das told the paper that his father was directed by the goddess Kali to drink the blood of sacrificed animals.
He added; “But the number of sacrifices then was 40 in four days. I made a record by sucking the blood of 207 goats this year.
“I don’t know what happens to me all these four days. I feel the goddess taking possession of my body.”
Thousands of people have arrived from neighbouring areas to witness Mr Das drink the goats’ blood.
Ramchandra Besra, a visitor from Ranchi, said: “It is a blood-curdling sight no doubt. But still we come here every year to get the blessings of the goddess.
