KUALA TERENGGANU, Malaysia - A 26-year-old man who may have been suffering from mental illness is believed to have died after a Siamese bomoh subjected him to a "liquid cleansing" ritual.
Faizal Harun was taken to the bomoh's home in Kampung Pulau Rusa, Merchang at about 7.45pm on Wednesday, after complaining that "supernatural beings" had been disturbing him for the past four years.
Accompanied by his father, the victim met the female bomoh known only as Kak Yah in the hope of curing the "strange illness".
When met at the Sultanah Zahirah Hospital, the victim's father Harun Senik, 53, claimed the 43-year-old bomoh told the victim to drink water to ward off evil spirits.
