Beaten and forced to take rose water, patient dies

UNB

Cumilla: A cancer patient has died as he was beaten for refusing to take more after galloping 60 bottles of rose water in the name of spiritual treatment by a fake quack at Chhatadda village in Chandina upazia in the district, reports UNB.

The deceased was identified as Shamim Khan, a resident of the village. Locals said Shamim had been suffering from cancer for long.

He went to Abul Kalam, who was locally known as master of spirits (Jiner Badshah), for the treatment of his cancer spiritually while Kalam asked him to collect 107 bottles of rose water and eight towels for the treatment.

Kalam told Shamim to drink all the 107 bottles of rose water at once, while Shamim managed to drink a total of 60 bottles on Monday night.

As Shamim was unable to drink more rose water, Kalam started to beat him brutally and at one stage, Shamim collapsed on the ground and died. After Shamim’s death, his father filed a case with Chandina Police Station and police arrested the fake spiritual healer, said officer-in-charge of Chandina Police Station Shamsul Islam.
