KUALA LUMPUR – An independent speaker with the title of ustaz who is suspected of raping a teenage girl has been handed over to the Perak police contingent to assist in the investigation.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said the Perak contingent’s criminal investigation team picked up the suspect, who is a local man in his 30s, yesterday afternoon.
“The remand of the independent speaker involved ended yesterday for the case in Kuala Lumpur and the suspect was sent to Perak yesterday afternoon.
“We have sent the suspect to Perak because further investigation is needed in the case reported in the state,” he told a press conference after the Kuala Lumpur 2022 Contingent National Hero Service Medal awarding ceremony at Pulapol Kuala Lumpur today here.
Azmi added that the investigation papers of the case involving the Kuala Lumpur contingent would be completed and submitted to the deputy public prosecutor this week.
