SEREMBAN: A man who claimed to be an Islamic medicine practitioner was arrested by the Negri Sembilan Islamic Religious Affairs Department (Jheains) while trying to have sex with the patient he was treating at her house in Kampung LBJ, here.

The 48-year-old man was nabbed in a raid by Jheains at 12.30pm while trying to have sex with the 24-year-old woman, purportedly as part of the treatment.

Jheains enforcement division principal assistant director, Ahmad Husaini Mustafa said the suspect, from Kuala Lumpur, had earlier contacted the victim to treat her difficulty to conceive.

“Upon arriving at the victim’s house, he recited some Quranic verses to treat her and perform ‘nikah batin’ (spiritual marriage) with her which was contrary to Islamic teachings.

“The man then tried to take advantage of the unsuspecting woman by performing sex on her, but his attempt was foiled by the Jheains raiding team,” he said.

Ahmad Husaini said the raid was conducted following public information and complaints received.

“We believe the suspect, who is married with children, is not knowledgeable in Islam but was using Quranic verses to dupe the victim,” he said. — Bernama
