Police in Indonesia say they have freed a 28‑year‑old woman who was held captive in a cave for 15 years by a village shaman.

The 83‑year‑old man is alleged to have kidnapped the woman when she was 13, and brainwashed her into believing he was possessed by a spirit.

He allegedly took her back to his home at night where he sexually abused her for more than a decade.

The man has been charged under sex abuse and child protection laws.

According to local media, the man ‑ named as Jago ‑ was known as an alternative healer and for performing black magic.

Police say that in 2003, the 13‑year‑old girl was brought to him for treatment by her own family and stayed behind with him.
