KUALA LUMPUR: Seorang guru tuisyen terpaksa menanggung azab apabila mengalami kecederaan di beberapa bahagian akibat dipukul seorang bomoh Cina hanya kerana sebuah tangkal didakwa 'sial'.

Lebih tidak masuk akal, apabila bomoh itu memberi alasan bahawa, tindakan memukulnya tidak dapat dielakkan dan ianya takdir Tuhan.

Kejadian pada 18 Februari lalu itu bermula sehari sebelum itu apabila mangsa, Lee Chian Ai, 38, menemani rakannya yang juga seorang bomoh ke sebuah tokong, untuk mengubati seorang remaja lelaki yang dikatakan sering mengalami mimpi ngeri.

Menurutnya, remaja lelaki itu diminta membuka rantai yang mempunyai buah berbentuk labu (tangkal) yang dipakai rakannya sebelum memulakan upacara.

“Bagaimanapun, pada keesokan harinya, remaja itu dikatakan jatuh sakit dan seseorang menghubungi rakan saya itu, mengatakan yang kami membuang 'benda sial' di kawasan itu, seterusnya melarang kami ke situ lagi.

“Namun, pada 18 Februari itu, saya pergi semula ke tokong itu hanya untuk menemani seorang lagi rakan lain yang sering ke situ untuk memberi penjelasan bahawa tiada sebarang benda tidak baik yang ditinggalkan,” katanya pada sidang media bersama Pengerusi Biro Perkhidmatan dan Aduan Awam Gerakan, Wilson Lau, di Menara PGRM, Jalan Cheras, di sini, semalam.

Tambahnya, ketika itu, mereka didatangi seorang bomoh cina (perempuan) mempertikaikan penjelasan mereka dan secara tiba-tiba marah.

“Saya bertanya padanya (bomoh) ‘kamu datang dari mana’ kerana syak dia dirasuk, namun dia berang dan terus mencapai papan kayu, memukul saya bertalu-talu di bahagian badan, bahu, lengan, dan bahagian kaki sehingga papan itu patah.

“Tidak cukup dengan itu dia mengambil papan lain untuk memukul saya lagi, dan dalam keadaan takut saya cuba lari dari situ namun dihalang oleh pengikutnya yang lain,” katanya yang akhirnya mendapatkan rawatan di sebuah klinik berhampiran.

Difahamkan, rakan (Sifu) mangsa, berhubung dengan bomoh perempuan itu mempersoalkan tindakan memukul mangsa, dan ianya diakui dalam masa sama mengatakan tindakan itu tidak dapat dielakkan.

Kejadian diketahui Biro Perkhidmatan dan Aduan Awam Gerakan pada 22 Februari dan laporan polis di Balai Polis Kepong pada 24 Februari lalu.
