By Swami Harshananda
This group revels in abominable practices like cannibalism, eating from a human skull, besmearing themselves with ashes from funeral pyres and consumption of spirituous liquors. The few surviving members of the sect are to be found mostly in Bihar, Bengal, Rajasthan and Assam. Owing to the natural abhorrence of people towards such sects, their number has dwindled.
