The Jigarkhwar is a witch vampire found in Indian legends from the Sind area. The creature is known for stealing people’s livers, removing it through incantations and intense staring. When the Indian vampire removes the liver, it takes the shape of a pomegranate seed and hides it in its calf.

Later the Jigarkhwar is thrown into a fire where it grows and is then eaten. When the Jigarkhwar finishes the liver, the victim dies.

In order to save the victim, one must rip the pomegranate seed from the Jigarkhwar’s calf and return it to the person who will swallow it.

The Indian people can destroy the witch vampire by branding it on both sides of the head, filling the eyes with salt, and hanging it in an underground chamber for 40 days
