User :   My 12 years old nephew living in XXX XXX is suffering from strange disease from past 15 days in which he behaves sometimes like as other person. Actually from past 2-3 years his performance was decreasing continuously in study, games even he was not able to do anything properly. Also he has bed-wetting disease since childhood. Beacuse of his performance his parents were scolding. Even simple simple things he cannot remember. In front of his home one XXXhen saw him told some bad Atmas(Ghosts) were on him. He just lighted a small candle then he started speking as different personalities. He told that ghosts are sent by his Aunt. He behaves normal generally but when as per his saying ghost comes his health becomes abnormal,time to time that Moulvi checked him and asked questions from Ghost,the reply was given by my nephew which behave as Ghost for that time being. I live in XXX and don't believe in these ghost stories. I think this is some mental disease and wanted to consult XXX. Now I really confused What is truth and how and where I should go for his treatment..???
