8 boys arrested for having sex with 13-year-old girl


HULU SELANGOR: Eight teenagers aged from 12 to 14 were arrested for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in an abandoned house in a housing estate here in Kuala Kubu Bharu on Friday.

The Form One student who was playing truant had on Thursday being reported to have skipped school and did not return home, said district deputy police chief Deputy Superintendent Zulkifli Bedin.

"She had instead slept at a surau in the housing estate, 100m away from the abandoned house where the incident took place," Zulkifli said, adding that the police received a report from the girl's family member who was notified of the girl's whereabouts by a man who had seen her cleaning her clothes at the surau that Friday morning, just before she went off with the boys.

It was learnt that the girl's wild ways may have been caused by the lack of attention at home, as her Indonesian mother who was divorced with her local husband had gone back home, and both of them had since remarried.

Zulkifli said the girl was later taken for check-ups at the Selayang Hospital.

The case is investigated under Section 376 for having sexual intercourse with an underage girl.
