Student kills dad at 'jinn's orders'

Mom said man suffered from mental disorders and not jinns (File)

By Staff

A man returning home in Sharjah from the United States used a broken table leg to kill his father and told police he did so on orders by the jinn (spirits).

His mother said he had suffered from mental disorders since he returned from studying in the US while his doctor said he had expected him to commit a murder.

Police, quoted by the Arabic language daily 'Emarat Al Youm', said the man gave “bizarre” statements during interrogation after he hit his father repeatedly with a table leg.

“My son has always told me that he feels there is jinn inside him controlling him and telling him to do things,” the mother said.
