Women trampled by god-men in a bid to get pregnant

According to reports, the women have performed this ritual for years during the annual festival of Ekadashi, in the month of July.

Daily Mail reports that women who are yet to bear children reportedly visit the Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple, in Anantapur district.
