Rituals to breathe life into dead woman

In a strange incident, a self-styled exorcist allegedly performed rituals to bring a dead woman back to life inside the autopsy room of a civil hospital in Gujarat, India, on 08 June 2015.
Janiben Baberia, aged 35, a tribal woman, had been brought to the hospital in an unconscious state after she was bitten by a snake at her house in a nearby village. She was declared as brought in dead by hospital doctors and the body was put in the autopsy room. On the other hand, her relatives called in a magician, hoping that he may be able to revive her by magic.
He performed mysterious rituals near the dead body. The hospital officials said such incidents were common in the area. 
Dr. Sohan Katara of the civil hospital said, "Tribals here have many superstitions. Though the woman was declared dead by doctors, her family called in the exorcist with the hope of bringing her back to life". 
He also said, "When they fall sick, they prefer to consult such exorcists rather than coming to us. This hospital has all the required facilities but they prefer to consult exorcists. We try our best to educate them about superstitions".
