The Police would wait for further instructions from DPP’s office
KUALA LUMPUR – The police have submitted the investigation paper (IP) involving a religious speaker suspected of raping an underage girl to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s (DPP) office.
According to Bernama, Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim confirmed that the IP was submitted today (02 August) and the police would await further instruction.
On 28 July, Azmi was reported to have said that the suspect, in his 30s, was handed over to the Perak police after his remand order obtained by the Kuala Lumpur police expired on 27 July.
It was reported previously that the religious speaker was arrested by the Kuala Selangor police at 4.50 pm on 18 August for investigation purposes under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape and Section 14 (a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017.
Based on the initial investigation, the suspect and the underaged girl got to know each other after the girl contacted him on social media on religious matters before getting into a relationship in May last year.
So far, four police reports had been lodged against the suspect, two in Selangor and one each in Kuala Lumpur and Perak.
