Police recorded five statements in school rape threat case

SHAH ALAM: Police have obtained CCTV recording of the alleged rape threat made against a 14-year-old girl and her friend at a school, here last week.

Shah Alam district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim confirmed that police have initiated an investigation into the claims under Section 14 (a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017.

"We have so far recorded five statements, including the victim, her father, the suspect and several others.

"We have also obtained the CCTV recordings from the school and are in the midst of reviewing the recordings, as part of the investigation process.

"However, police have yet to speak to the teachers and independent witnesses who may have seen the incident because of the school holidays that just started," he said adding that some of them have gone back to their hometowns for the holiday break.

Mohd Iqbal said the teachers and remaining witnesses would be summoned for the statement taking process as soon as they are available.

"The victim's medical report from University Malaya Medical Centre has also been obtained to facilitate the ongoing investigation," he added.

Earlier it was reported that a police report was lodged by the victim on the alleged rape threat and attack from a fellow student studying in the same government school, on Dec 15 at around 2pm.

The suspect who is also 14 years-old was said to have threatened the victim and her friend that he would rape them, if they reported a staring incident between the suspect and the two girls to the teacher.

The suspect who allegedly made the same threat twice, had allegedly grabbed the victim's arm and tore her head scarf in one of the incidents, before she pushed him away.

The incident was brought to light by the victim's father Nazri Ahmad via a post on his Facebook, which then became viral.

In the post Nazri claimed that his daughter's schoolmate did not only threaten to rape her but also behaved aggressively towards her.
