Nepali nabbed for alleged rape of 15-year-old missing girl
By SHAUN HO
KLANG: A 32-year-old Nepali, who allegedly had sex with one of the sisters reported missing last Thursday, has been detained and is being investigated for statutory rape.
South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mat Yusop said medical examinations revealed signs of penetration in the older sister.
“We believe the 15-year-old girl had sex within the time she was considered missing,” he told reporters here on Tuesday.
“We have since arrested the man, believed to be her boyfriend.”
ACP Mohamed said he was a general worker at a shopping outlet in Klang and would be placed under remand for two weeks.
He will be investigated under the Immigrations Act and for statutory rape.
“The sisters are still in the hospital and will be released to their family today or tomorrow,” he said.
“If they still refuse to go back, I will refer them to the Welfare Department.”
Police found the missing girls at the Nepali's house in Taman Sentosa here at 2pm on Monday after a tip-off.
ACP Mohamed said investigations revealed that the girls had run away to be with their boyfriends.
“We believe the younger sister also has a Nepali boyfriend,” he said.
“The girls met the foreigners in December and had gone out with them four times before they ran away.
”When contacted, the girls' father said they were getting impatient and wanted to see their daughters.
“I just want to know when I can see them again,” he said. “My wife waited at the hospital until 1am (on Monday) to meet them.”
Despite the latest revelations, he did not believe that they ran away to stay with their boyfriends, and wanted to know where they went.
