The sexual assault case involving a well-known pious figure seems to be far from over.
This time around, the suspect has been detained once again for allegedly molesting a college student. Shockingly, the incident had reportedly took place in October this year!
Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Asst Com Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that the police received a report from a 22-year-old woman, claiming that she was raped by a 25-year-old man who is also a celebrity preacher. The victim claimed she was invited by the suspect to his house on 17th October. He had asked her over to share some tips on business marketing, reported Harian Metro.
“While at the house, the victim was sexually assaulted and was also forced to have oral sex with the suspect. Following the incident, the victim suffered trauma and is currently receiving treatment at the University of Malaya Medical Center (PPUM),” Nik Ezanee said in a statement.
In related news, the police have received a total of 6 reports of sexual offences conducted by the offender. As shared by Head of the Selangor Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Datuk Fadzil Ahmat, 5 reports were received in Shah Alam. Meanwhile, another report came from someone in Petaling Jaya.
The police official said, “Investigations are conducted under sexual offences including Section 376 of the Penal Code (rape), 354 of the Penal Code (obscenity), 377 (c) (unnatural sex) and 323 of the Penal Code (injuring).”
It is understood that the suspect’s remand period will end today (Tuesday, 1st December). However, due to several new reports leading to the case, additional remand orders will be requested to assist in the investigation.
Fadzil concluded by urging other victims of the suspect to come forward and lodge a report against the sexual offender.
