Encyclopedia entry

of human victims in the name of the religion. Robbery of the
victim provided the means of livelihood. They were also
called _Phansigars_ (Noose operators) from the method employed.
Vigorous suppression was begun by Lord William Bentinck in
1828, but the fraternity did not become completely extinct
