TEEN GIRL DIES FROM RELIGIOUS FAST PRESCRIBED BY GURU

A 13-year-old girl in India took part in an extreme religious fast and died after over two months of not eating and having almost no sleep, according to reports. After calling off the fast, she fell into a coma and after two days, she died of cardiac arrest on Oct. 4th.

The parents - Laxmi Chand and Manshi Samdariya - have been booked under culpable homicide [causing death by negligence] and Juvenile Justice Act [cruelty against minors]," the spokesperson said.

"The entire nation should be ashamed that such a practice still exists. Her father's guru advised the family that if she fasted for 68 days, his business would be profitable," activist Achyut Rao told BBC Hindi."
