71 suspected Kuman Thong dolls discovered in Vietnam apartment

Police in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta have discovered 71 suspected Kuman Thong dolls at a local apartment.

The dolls were found after police officers examined apartment No. P328 at the Hung Phu apartment building in Cai Rang District, Can Tho City on Tuesday.

Thai Thi Yen Nhi, 24, who resides at the location, was not able to provide any documents proving the origin of the dolls.

All of the products were later confiscated by police officers to facilitate their investigation.

The dolls were suspected to be Kuman Thong, a household divinity of Thai folk religion that is believed to bring luck and fortune to the owner.

They are often worshipped to obey their worshippers for personal gains, protection, wealth, and harm in some cases.

In Vietnam, a lot of secret and superstitious groups have been established on social media to trade, exchange, and worship Kuman Thong, according to officers.

These dolls are usually offered at millions to hundreds of millions of dong. (VND1 million = US$43.5)
