Mother strangles 6 year-old son to ward off Jinn on faith healer’s advice

FEROZEWALA: A mother killed her 6 year-old son after a Pir advised her to commit the act in order to ward off a Jinn.

An unusual murder took place when a mother killed her 6 year-old son after a faith healer she often visited, advised her to commit the act.

According to details, a woman who belonged to the Wandala Dayal Shah area of Ferozewala Tehsil, killed her six-year old son by strangling him with a piece of cloth. The mother had committed the heinous act on advice of a faith healer who had told her the act was necessary in order to ward off a Jinn that had taken over her. Sources revealed that the faith healer had told the mother that if she did not kill her son to ward off the Jinn, she would end up being dead.

Relatives of the deceased said the mother named Shabana Bibi and the child’s maternal grandmother often visited the faith healer or ‘Pir’. Police registered a case against the mother and took her into custody.
