Moscow, March 23 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A paediatrician in Russia faces a criminal case for injuring a child who, the doctor insisted, was possessed by demons, officials said.


The incident took place in the town of Beryozovsky in Sverdlovsk region.


Ivan Yeryomin, a 26-year-old doctor, made a house call to check on an ill three-year-old child, the news website reported.


While examining the child, the doctor tried to shove his hand down his throat, causing him to bleed and faint, the report said.


When the boy's father stopped the doctor and called the police, the medic said he was trying to exorcise demons from the child.


The doctor also insisted he was sent to Earth by unspecified powers to prevent the Apocalypse.


The accused faces battery charges, punishable with a fine of 40,000 rubles (around $1,350) or three months in jail.


The child was hospitalised with serious injuries and trauma.


The doctor was taken to a psychiatric hospital after apparently having suffered a nervous breakdown, investigators said.
