A family in Saudi Arabia, saying it is harassed by spirits, is taking a “genie” to court, accusing it of theft and other charges, the Al-Watan newspaper reported.
The family says the spirit has threatened the household, attacked it with stones and robbed family members of mobile phones.
The family have lived in the same house near the city of Medina for 15 years but say they only recently became aware of the spititual presence and moved out.
“We began to hear strange sounds,” the head of the family, who was not named and comes from Mahd al-Dahab, told the Saudi daily,
A local court is investigating “despite the difficulty” of verifying the claims, the newspaper said.
Genies are a part of Islamic theology and are believed to have power to possess humans.
