KUALA LUMPUR, May 16 (Bernama) -- An Islamic medicine practitioner told the High Court here that he had received a 'guidance', a sign which pointed to Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM) cadet officer Zulfarhan Osman Zulkarnain, who died after being allegedly tortured by his university-mates, as the one who had stolen a laptop.
Abdullah Md Seh, 56, the father of one of the accused in the murder case, said he saw the sign after performing Solat Hajat and Istikharah (prayer of guidance) to help students from the university to identify the individual who allegedly stole the said laptop.
"The sign came from intuition, I saw his name. I used some 'items' as well. (Zulfarhan Osman's) name appeared in my view," said the father of Muhamad Ashraf, the 18th accused who allegedly deliberately injured Zulfarhan Osman.
Abdullah, who was the 13th prosecution witness, said this during the examination-in-chief by DPP Othman Abdullah at the seventh day of the trial here, today.
While the witness was taking the stand, those in the public gallery were seen whispering with each other, with the victim's family members were heard saying sarcastically, "wow, wow, what a great 'shaman'".....
