VILLUPURAM: Even as paediatricians and neonatal experts at the Mundiyambakkam GH plan to give counselling to the mother of the baby diagnosed with Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC) syndrome, a self-styled god man has claimed that he has the remedy for the baby’s condition.

According to sources, the woman Rajeshwari is not allowing doctors to shift the baby to Kilpauk Medical College in Chennai for further diagnosis and treatment. The baby is under close observation and has not suffered any burn injuries in the past 24 hours.

Sources add that Rajeshwari remains adamant about not travelling to Chennai and alleges that she has had bitter experience in the past.

Meanwhile, a middle-aged man who introduced himself as “holy brother” Jesus Napoleon has claimed that Mozhiyanur village, from where Rajeshwari hails, is under the spell of evil spirits which is the reason for the chaos. Napolean claims that he received a prophecy about Raghul (the couple’s first child born in 2013 and diagnosed with SHC), two days ago and that he had warned the family members that a similar fate was about to befall the second child.

Further, Napolean said he had written about the condition of the new-born boy on his social media page on Friday even before news reached the public and claims he has the powers to cure the village of its misery.

Although Raghul is not the victim at present, Napolean’s claims have caused panic among villagers and relatives of the infant recovering in the Mundiyambakkam GH.
