Patna, Jan 31 (TheBIharPost/IBNS): A man from Bihar slit open his throat to please deity at a Hindu temple in neighbouring Jharkhand state on Tuesday.

The incident took place at Chhinnamasta temple at Rajrappa, located in Ramgarh district of Jharkhand, this morning.

Reports said scores of devotees were waiting for their turn to offer prayers at the temple when the man reached there with a sharp-edged knife in hand, made round of the temple and then slip open his throat with his own hand before the goddess, as the devotes screamed.

Very soon, he lay on the ground lifeless. Later the police reached the spot and recovered his body which was sent for postmortem.

Victim family members told the police that he was a strong devotee of the Goddess and always talked about departing for the other world with the deity.

The victim has been identified as Sanjay Nutt, 45, who was posted in the CRPF.

The goddess Chhinnamasta is depicted in religious paintings as a headless deity holding her severed head in one hand and a scimitar in the other with jets of bloods sprouting from the neck.

This temple has been drawing hordes of Hindu pilgrims every year.
