TWO rival djinns are said to be the cause of a fire at Zainab Sulai­man’s house in Kampung Bunga Emas, Penambang, Kota Baru, last month.

Kosmo! Ahad reported that a traditional practitioner from Selangor Saad Jaafar managed to catch both djinns.

Apparently, the first djinn caused the house to catch fire while the other belongs to 80-year-old Zainab’s family.

Saad assured that there would be no more trouble now that he has caught both misbehaving djinns.

Zainab’s plight came to light after a mysterious fire started to appear in her house from nowhere seven years ago.

The tabloid reported that her mattresses, cupboards and clothes would catch fire for no reason.

On Sept 19, her house was destroyed together with two neighbouring houses in a fire.

According to Zainab’s granddaughter Wan Nur Fatihah Wan Ha­na­fi, 19, she said the “war” between both djinns sparked off a huge fire, razing the wooden house.

Kuching police chief Asst Comm Abang Ahmad Abang Julai said police arrested a 24-year-old man last Thursday.
