A 13-year-old girl suffocated after she was strapped down and doused with water by her father and a monk who were trying to expel an "evil spirit".
The two men are suspected of having conspired in what they call "water service".
They allegedly strapped the victim to a chair with belts and poured water over her as an "exorcism" with the father holding the girl down whil the monk chanted sutras.
I think it was not an exorcism but a torture.
Japan adopts the freedom of religion, but human life should never be trifled with.
