Hold me there, bomoh tells woman

A WOMAN was asked to hold a bomoh's genitals to get rid of a supposedly bad spell from her body.

The 24-year-old woman and a friend, aged 29, had gone to a spa in Taman Melawati, Selangor for a body massage on Dec 30.

At the spa, an employee there told her that someone had cast a spell on her.

The worker said she knew a bomoh (medium) who could help rid the spell.

The woman agreed to the service and was introduced to the bomoh in his 50s, Harian Metro reported.

On the same day, she was ordered to take a shower with lime water.

She was then asked to get into a room alone. Her friend was not allowed in as the bomoh claimed the spell would be passed on to anyone nearby.

In the room, the woman was ordered to strip naked and lie on a bed.

Then the bomoh covered her body with flour while performing a ritual.

When the process was over and the woman was about to get dressed, the bomoh suddenly hugged her and asked her to hold his genitals, claiming that it was the only way to transfer the chants into her body.

She, however, refused and ran out of the room.

After paying RM700 for the treatment, the woman and her friend left.

She lodged a police report in Ampang last Tuesday following advice from her family. -The Daily Chilli/Asia News Network
