Let us tell you here that burning the bodies of children in this manner is called Dom in rural-tribal areas. This is a superstition, in which the villagers believe that if the child has any disease, then the disease goes away by domming it i.e. burning it with hot rods or needles. Such cases have happened many times in Shahdol before. Many times, children’s lives are in danger due to the superstition of burning them with hot rods or needles, but this superstition is still not stopping.
