The Burach Bhadi is a four to six feet long leech with nine eyes. It lives in bodies of water near roadways, where it lies in wait for horses. When a horse passes by, with or without a rider, it wraps itself around the horse's legs and drag them down into the water, including its rider. It drowns its prey and then drains it of blood.
