A MALAYSIAN man who was reported missing in Singapore after visiting the Malaysian High Commission there on Nov 27 was apparently locked up in Changi Prison, reported Sin Chew Daily.
Gan Jing Yang, 21, who works as a stall helper in Singapore, was believed to have gone to the office to renew his passport but lost contact with his family after that.
His mother, who wished to be known only as Madam Lim, reportedly enquired about his whereabouts at the office on Thursday and was told that he was sent to prison on Nov 29.
Madam Lim, who is from Ipoh, said she was perplexed as to why her son was in prison but believed that he could have lost his travel documents.
It was not reported why her son was imprisoned.
> A bomoh had allegedly used hypnotism to rape two sisters during “healing” sessions, China Press reported.
The victims, aged 16 and 18, had received the “healing” sessions from the 38-year-old medium in 2010; but had only realised they were raped on numerous occasions last year.
They had only reported about the incidents to the police on Dec 2 this year.
Jempol OCPD Supt Hamzah Alias said police had nabbed the man.
It was reported that the medium was introduced to the girls by their mother in 2010.
One of the sisters was 16 then.
The suspect had gone to their home to conduct the healing in a room and later also called the other sister, aged only 14, into the room as well, where he allegedly raped them.
They had only spoken about their “healing experiences” last year and realised that they were raped.
