The man was immediately taken to the hospital and his condition was quite stable. According to the victim’s father, the man wasn't mentally healthy and he had been examining the Navratri rituals and supposedly got deluded to commit such actions.
In the second incident, a man around 49 years old tried to end his own life as a part of a ritual of offering himself at a Shiv temple in the Kurara area of Uttar Pradesh. The victim, namely Rukmani Mishra, attempted to slash his throat with a knife on a Saturday night at the Koteshwar Temple. The victim was severely injured and instantly taken to the hospital.
