The Star Online Man hangs like a bat in khalwat raid reported:
Struck by fear and panic during a raid by religious department officials, a man wrapped himself in a sarong and hung like a bat from a toilet door to avoid detection, reported Harian Metro.
However, the 27-year-old man failed in his attempt to deceive officials and was nabbed for khalwat (close proximity), the report said.
Langkawi district religious department enforcer Aswad Kasa said a team raided the house in Kampung Nyior Cabang at about 3am on Sunday, after receiving a tip-off on immoral activities there.
He said the house looked empty on initial inspection, with the front door padlocked. When they knocked on the back door, a 25-year-old woman, clad only in a batik cloth, opened the door.
“The woman claimed she was staying alone in the house after separating from her husband. However, on inspection, we found a man in the toilet. He was hanging behind the door like a bat, fearing of being caught for khalwat,” he said, adding that the couple failed to prove that they were husband and wife.
Hmmm, as they say, 'necessity is the mother of invention'.
But I wonder whether Batman also did it 17 times like this bloke?
