Dimapur, Sep. 11 (EMN): The Muslim Council Dimapur (MCD) has expelled a “kobiraj” (quack) for allegedly performing “witchcraft and black magic” in partnership with a local woman in Oriental colony.
A press release from the MCD on Monday identified the expelled member as Samsul Hoque, temporary resident of Oriental Colony, Dimapur and a native of Thuria Pahar village of Kokrajhar district in Assam. The expulsion, it stated, was in continuation of a community resolution adopted in 2012.
According to the MCD, Hoque ‘has been operating his activities in partnership’ with an unnamed local woman for the last two years from a house in Oriental colony.
Ahidur Rahman, the working president of MCD, thanked “the office of the Naga conclave” for notifying the council of the activities. “The MCD again request all citizens of Dimapur not to entertain any kobiraj and also requested (sic) all landlords not to rent out their premises to such persons.”
