A coconut was detained by Maldivian police as "suspicious fruit" on Tuesday after it was found near a designated polling station. The coconut had a Quranic verse written on it, leaving some to believe it had links to black magic, which could be used to influence voters ahead of Saturday's presidential election.
Police summoned a ruqyah or white magic practitioner to determine whether the coconut was, in fact, cursed. No charges were filed, as the ruqyah found the coconut to be a fake - reassuring the police that they had nothing to worry about.
