A malicious psychic presence, mysterious gas leak, mass hysteria, or some combination thereof? The Express Tribune reports:
Nearly 25 female workers of a Landhi garments factory fell unconscious in the aftermath of an exorcism to get rid of ‘evil spirits’ in the workplace on Monday.
“The factory seemed to be overtaken by a genie or evil spirit,” claimed Farzana Naseem. “A spiritualist was called to this morning to get rid of the suspected ‘jinns’ but as soon as he began reciting different verses, the workers began falling unconscious while others ran out shouting and screaming for help.”
Rescue teams were called in to the factory, Casual Sports Wear. The rescue workers insisted, however, that there was a mysterious gas leak which caused the workers to faint.
“I do not believe the workers were possessed,” said Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre deputy executive director Dr Seemin Jamali. “But this hysteric influence might have played out as a ripple effect.”
