A A A

A 32-year old English teacher of a government school who was also an exorcist who performed rites in a deep pit to dispel the spirits that haunted a house in Godigamuwa off Maharagama last night was found dead when the pit was opened.

Police said the exorcist had been lying in the pit with a sword in hand. He had instructed those present including his assistant to close the mouth of the pit with earth and to open it when he gave a signal.

However after waiting for about three hours without any response from him, they opened the pit to find the exorcist dead. (Muditha Dayananda)

    weera Thursday, 05 September 2013 04:11 PM

    Probably due to lack of Oxygen or a poisionous gas in the pit.

    Cobra Thursday, 05 September 2013 02:36 PM

    Jokes apart, I would really like to know how he died.

    He thought what he did was right, but never thought what to do if it was wrong

    Fusion Thursday, 05 September 2013 02:20 PM

    Yes, the lack of oxygen is an extremely dangerous devil.
