A LABASA businessman in police custody, is being investigated for allegedly raping a woman inside a hotel room.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the 51-year-old businessman of Labasa had allegedly influenced a 34-year-old woman from Sigatoka to travel to Labasa with him.

"The man told the woman she would be healed by his witchcraft powers and he would do it in Labasa," he said.

"The suspect told the woman who was sick that he can heal her sickness since he is practising witchcraft.

"The woman travelled to Labasa and booked into a hotel with the man for healing purposes.

"While in the room, the witchdoctor was alleged to have raped the victim."

Insp Sokomuri added investigations were continuing.
