Khulasat-ul Tawarikh has detailed accounts of 'dayans', female goblins who were fond of chewing the hearts of children
In the Khulasat-ul Tawarikh one comes across a detailed account of the dayans (female goblins) of Thatta, renowned across India for their ferocity. They were particularly fond of chewing the hearts of children, and the author of Khulasat-ul Tawarikh reports having witnessed an event where a dayan tore open a child’s breast and swallowed its heart. But the power of a dayan’s gaze even felled adults, who were rendered unconscious, whereupon the dayan would extract and eat their hearts.
