Nuapada: In a bizarre incident, a couple of Sunabeda area under Komna block of Odisha’s Nuapada district underwent traditional ‘purification’ after returning home from New Delhi as they had gone to the national capital to attend the Republic Day celebrations.
According to reports, Bhujabala Bhunjia and his wife Kunjabai Bhunjia returned to the village on Thursday after attending the event as guests.
As per the tradition of the Bhunjia community, they spent the whole night in a room outside their house. Later, milk was sprinkled on them as a part of the ‘purification’ (Shuddhi) ritual, following which they were accepted as a part of the community by the locals.
The duo also had to sacrifice animals in front of the local deity and arrange a feast for the villagers.
