Frantic at the thought of being rejected by her would-be husband if he finds out that she was not a virgin, a gullible woman sought a bomohâ€™s help to fix her hymen.
However, the 53-year-old bomoh decided to take advantage of her naivety instead.
He made the 22-year-old woman send explicit videos of herself to him and forced himself on her as part of the â€œhealing ritualâ€, according to The Star Online.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab said the woman, who works as a secretary, was engaged to be married this month.
On March 27, she sought help from the bomoh in Semenyih to â€œrepair her hymenâ€.
â€œShe was afraid that on their wedding night, her fiancÃ© would reject her if he found out she had already had intercourse before.
â€œThe bomoh offered her three ways to heal her hymen,â€ ACP Abdul Rashid told reporters at the Kajang police headquarters yesterday.
â€œHe said she could send him 10 explicit videos of herself, let him touch her body or let him have sex with her,â€ he said.
The woman chose the first option, and sent the bomoh three explicit videos of herself. However, she got tired of sending him the videos and settled for the second option.
She met the suspect at about 7.20pm on April 16 at a shack near Broga Hill.
The woman initially assumed that the bomoh merely wanted to caress her.
â€œInstead, he forced himself on her,â€ Abdul Rashid said, adding that she lodged a police report the same night.
The suspect was arrested the same day.
â€œInvestigations revealed the victim had already lodged a report against the bomoh on March 27 â€“ the day they met.
â€œShe claimed the bomoh had put a spell on her by holding her hand, which made her feel naughty,â€ he said.
The bomoh has been remanded until today and is being investigated for rape.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
