Churels are often associated with spirits on The peepal tree


My questions

  1. Who are churels, are they Dayans
  2. Are there any mention about these evil entities in the puranas

The article mentions

This demon also has associations with the various accounts of the Mother Goddess as well as the Rakshasi.[1] Within Hindu belief, Churels may turn into dakinis and serve the goddess Kali, joining the goddess in her routine of feasting on human flesh and blood.[13]

I still don't get how can evil entity as a Churel worship Kali? Kali being the supreme Goddess supports Dharma which is against evil doings, How can a Churel worship her? However Dakinis are bad only to the wrong doers But What about Churels?
