Thai monk exorcises ghostly tank-top cellmate

Bangkok - Thai prison authorities called in a Buddhist monk to exorcise a jail cell allegedly haunted by a ghost wearing a red tank-top shirt, media reports said Saturday.

The exorcism took place Friday at Bangkok's crime suppression division jail, after at least two cellmates complained of being spooked by an apparition partial to wearing a red tank top and attacking them in their dreams, said The Nation newspaper.

According to police records, a man accused of raping his niece had hanged himself in the cell on July 1. The records, however, did not indicate that the suicide had a fashion fondness for red tank tops.
