In a strange ritual, more than 2,000 women including school-going teen-aged girls, who were believed to be possessed by evil spirits were given vicious whip lashes to free them from these bad elements at the annual festival of the ancient Sri Achappan Temple at Bavithram Vellalapatti, a remote village situated on the border of Tiruchi and Namakkal districts, on Monday, the Vijayadasami Day.
The men priests, dressed in traditional attire, cracked whips on the possessed women, the salvation seekers, who sat in a half-kilometre-long queue for nearly five hours on a sprawling open space called lashing ground near the temple.
