A man who allegedly claimed to be an Islamic prophet and tricked his male followers into allowing him to have sex with their wives and daughters has been arrested, Indonesian police said Friday. 

A 48-year-old Indonesian man named Bantil (C) is escorted by plainclothed police (R) from his residence in Kutai Timur in East Kalimantan province in Indonesia's Borneo island on December 10, 2012. The man, who allegedly claimed to be an Islamic prophet and tricked his male followers into allowing him to have sex with their wives and daughters, has been arrested, Indonesian police said Friday.

The 48-year-old was detained on the island of Borneo after several followers reported he had told them to pay him money or organise sexual relations with relatives to purify them of their sins, a police spokesman said.
