A woman died following an exorcism at a house in Katukeliyawa in Anuradhapura.
Police said the exorcist and his assistants have been arrested in connection to the death.
The husband of the deceased had taken her to an exorcist hoping she’d be cured from a mental condition.
She was admitted to the Anuradhapura Teaching hospital, due to health complications that arose
during the ritual.
The deceased woman was a resident of Nellikulawa in Anuradhapura.
