Vidārita (विदारित) refers to “getting torn apart (with javelins)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.7 (“Commencement of the War”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] The backs of some were torn (vidārita) with javelins and goads. Several heads chopped off by double-edged swords fell on the ground. Hundreds of headless, limbless trunks were seen dancing and bouncing with arrows sticking to their hands. Blood flowed like streams in hundreds of places. Hundreds of ghosts and goblins flocked there. [...]”.
