An Indian who molested a Singapore woman with a lemon has been sentenced to nine months in jail and three strokes of the cane, court documents obtained on Tuesday said.
Singarahalli Chinnaswamy Manjaiah was in Singapore on a social visit pass when he approached a 33-year-old housewife outside a shopping centre on March 2, a statement of facts filed by the prosecution said.
Manjaiah, 30, convinced her that he was a fortune teller and that she was possessed by a "kutty-satan", or little demon.
He told her she would die soon or become a prostitute if the kutty-satan was not removed by his prayer ritual at a cost of USD 166 US, the statement said.
Believing she was possessed, the woman met Manjaiah two days later and he took her to a quiet spot at a public housing complex to perform the ritual, it said.
Insisting that to cure her he must rub a lemon all over her body, "the accused inserted his right hand into the complainant's sari and rubbed the lemon on the complainant's breasts, stomach, navel and vagina," the prosecution stated.
Manjaiah sobbed loudly when the subordinate court passed sentence yesterday, The Straits Times reported.
