KUALA TERENGGANU: Police are on the hunt for a bomoh (witch doctor) who is believed to have raped a 22-year-old mentally handicapped woman under the pretext of treating her.

The suspect is believed to have raped the victim at her home in Kampung Padang Midin some time in July this year (2009).

The suspect is believed to have fled after finding out the victim’s elder brother had lodged a police report after realising the woman was pregnant.

The victim’s family had sought the service of the bomoh in July after the latter claimed to have the power to “cure” the victim.

It is learnt the suspect conducted the “treatment” in the victim’s bedroom when the other family members were out.
