Student tries to sell friends-in-shower video
A UNIVERSITY student in Penang filmed his female course mates in the shower and attempted to sell the video.
Nanyang Siang Pau reported that he filmed them showering during a trip to represent their university in Canada in May.
He became good friends with three of the girls and they decided to stay together in a room to cut the accommodation cost.
The student is said to have even offered the girls a share of the profit from the sale of the video.
Penang CID chief Senior Asst Comm Mazlan Kesah said a report was lodged in Vancouver earlier by the victims, who also filed a complaint with the university and local police upon returning to Malaysia.
It was reported that the matter had been handed over to the university's disciplinary board.
