When NewsMobile fact-checked the post, we found the claim to be fake.
On putting the image through reverse Image Search along with the keywords, we found that this story originated somewhere in 2014 after the story appeared in several blog posts.
On further investigation on Yandex, we found that the image is of a spiritual healer in Bangladesh named ‘Amzad Fakir‘. Amzad was arrested by local authorities in 2010 on charges related to his orthodox medical practice.
The above information proves that the viral claim is fake.
