A woman in a bid to get rid of devils, sacrificed her three children to please the demons on Sunday.
According to police, the woman, identified as Najma, a resident of Gulshan Hayat Park in Ferozwala, was convinced by an exorcist that she was possessed by demons and the only way to get rid of them was to sacrifice her children.
The woman hanged her two sons and a daughter on Sunday on the exorcist’s instigation.
