Ex-security guard’s rape attempt of university student, 18, adjourned

26th March, 2020

KOTA KINABALU: The Sessions Court here adjourned to April 6 the case of a former security guard charged with attempted rape of an 18-year-old university student.

Sessions Court judge, Elsie Primus set the date on Arshad Masdin, 26, due to Movement Control Order. Initially, at the prosecution stage, deputy public prosecutors, Rustam Sanip and Mas Izzaty Lokman had called 22 witnesses to testify on the case, while the defence called three witnesses.

Arshad allegedly tried to rape the girl by tearing and removing her clothes at 12.30am on July 15, 2018, at a hostel of a local university, here.

He faces a charge framed under Section 376(2)/511 of the Penal Code which carries a jail term of between 10 years and 15 years, and whipping, upon conviction.

This case was first arraigned on July 25, 2018, where the accused denied the charge and had been granted bail of RM5,000 in two sureties pending disposal of the case.

Counsel Shahlan Jufri who was assisted by counsels, Mohd Luqman Syazman Zabidi and Mohd Al-Hafidz Mohd Lokman, defended Arshad. – NEDM
