They were taking part in an annual festival of blood known as Bagwal, which is held to worship the deity known as Barahi Devi.

In the past, human sacrifice used to be carried out to appease Barahi Devi, who is pleased by blood. In contemporary times, however, they have used the stone-throwing festival as a way to shed blood for the deity without indulging in human sacrifice.

At this year’s festival, huge crowds turned up to lob stones at each other and in the end, over 100 people were injured.
