An Indonesian shaman, 83 year old, kidnapped a 12-year-old girl and made her as sex slave for 15 years after telling her that he was possessed by the spirit of her boyfriend.
Shaman, identified by Indonesian police as 83-year-old JG, kidnapped the girl in 2003.
According to local news report, the then 12 year old girl was vanished and kept in a jungle cave for 15 years.
“JG” convinced her that he was possessed by the spirit of a boy named “Amrin”.
The young girl believed that she was dating her boyfriend but in fact she was having sex with the Shaman.
Furthermore, the girl, named only as H by police, went missing from the village of Bajugan in 2003 and was kept in a jungle cave by the shaman, identified by officers as JG.
Police said JG, 83, had shown the girl, now aged 28, a picture of a boy named Amrin ‘who she thought was her boyfriend’.
“She was led to believe that Amrin’s spirit had entered (the elderly man’s) body,” Central Sulawesi Police Chief Muhammad Iqbal Alqudusy said.
‘It is obvious that he was satisfying his lust,’ the officer added.
During the day the woman was kept in the cave to avoid detection, but at night she was brought up to a hut near the shaman’s own.
She was rescued on Sunday but officers acting on a tip-off.
The man explained the victim’s disappearance to her parents by saying she had gone to Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, to work, the newspaper reported.
