Pakistani charged with molesting 16-year-old girl

7th September, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: A Pakistani man was on Thursday charged in the Magistrate’s Court here with molesting a 16-year-old girl.

The 25-year-old shop caretaker however claimed trial to the charge against him framed under Section 354 of the Penal Code.

He denied outraging the modesty of the young girl by touching her breast and private part on Nov 29, 2016, at 7.30pm at Taman Kristal in Jalan Kobusak, Penampang.

If convicted, the accused could be jailed up to 10 years or fined or whipped, or any two of such punishments.

The court fixed Sept 12 for case management and allowed the accused to be released on RM3,500 bail with two local sureties.

In a separate case, a man was sentenced to a month’s jail for possessing without a lawful reason a steel cutter, a popular house-breaking tool.

Tani Kasim, 25, was nabbed on Sept 3, at 12.37am at the first floor of Star City, near here.

The court heard that, he was acting suspiciously which prompted the 24-year-old complainant to inspect him which led to the discovery of the steel cutter inside his bag.

He was convicted under Section 18 (e) of the Minor Offences Ordinance (Sabah Cap. 80) which provides imprisonment for six months, and any such instruments or implements found in the possession of such person shall be forfeited.

Tani will be referred to the Immigration Department after completing his jail sentence. Inspector Nur Hidayah Mahzan prosecuted both cases. –ECA
