A Saudi man has been chained in a basement apartment for more than six years because his father believes he is possessed by an evil female genie

A Muslim cleric told the father to shackle his son’s arms and legs in chains and read the Koran to him. The father claimed he himself was afflicted by a jinn at the age of nine and suffered for more than four decades until it was exorcised by an Islamic cleric. In 2009, another Saudi family actually took a 'genie' to court, accusing it of theft and harassment.
