Anantnag: A self-styled faith healer has been arrested for allegedly raping two girls in South Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
The accused, Ashraf Mir son of Ghulam Ahmed Mir, is a resident of Akingam village of Anantnag district.
Sources told Kashmir News Trust that a man from Tailwan Achabal village, Muhammad Maqbool Dar, lodged a complaint at Police Station Achabal alleging that a self-styled faith healer forcibly raped her two daughters.
He has mentioned in his complaint that his family used to visit the self-styled faith healer to get amulets and blessings from him. Now, it has dawned upon him that ‘Pir’ Ashraf Mir has forcibly tarnished the chastity of his two daughters.
