This is the bizarre moment police found a crazed naked tourist hiding in a forest after having a EXORCISM.
Kirill Belov, 34, pulled up at a fuel station but suddenly stripped off and ran into nearby woodland screaming that he could ”see dead people”.
Shocked friend Starheyeu Aliaksandr, 34, alerted police who began frantically searching for the Belorussian tourist in Phuket, Thailand.
They were stunned when they found him at a rubber plantation having undergone a naked tribal Buddhist exorcism by local villagers who believed he was possessed by evil spirits.
Miraculously, police said he had ”calmed down” after the spiritual cleansing ritual and released Kirill after he returned a clean drugs tests.
Police Lt Nirot Boonsiri said they found the troubled holidaymaker in a ”trance like state”.
He added: ”The exorcism spells seemed to have worked – Mr Belov appeared to have calmed down. We tested him for drug use, but the results were negative
”The friends plan to go to Malaysia on a visa run but we’d still like to have Mr Belov looked at by a psychologist.”
