A teenager was brutally gang-raped then had her eyes gouged out by her sister in a brutal exorcism ritual that the rapists claim was ordered by a local pastor. The victim, aged just 16, is now fighting for her life in hospital after the horrific ordeal, which her family said they orchestrated because they believed she was possessed by the devil.
The horrific attack happened in the town of General Pinedo, in the North Argentina and police have arrested the older sister. After the terrible ordeal, the teenager was pinned down and her elder sister cut both of her eyes out.
She told police that her sibling was having visions and it was believed that because demons are terrified of pain, the act would drive out the demon.
Doctors reported that the victim had also suffered several injuries in the genital area and It is understood that police are about to arrest a group of men who took part in the twisted ritual.
Police Commissioner Pablo Almiron said that the girl’s parents also believed she was possessed by the devil. They told police she kept seeing animals like goats that were not there, and they had asked the evangelic centre and its pastor to help them ‘cure her’.
