KUALA LUMPUR — A tahfiz school teacher in Hulu Kelang was arrested yesterday after he allegedly forced himself onto his 14-year-old student several times before performing oral sex on him.
The lid was blown off the case after the victim reported the incident to police on Tuesday, claiming he was sexually violated at least five times over the past three months by the 21-year-old teacher.
Ampang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Hamzah Alias said the victim’s ordeal began several months ago when he was first approached by the teacher.
“The teacher asked if he could perform oral sex on the boy but he resisted,” he said.
“Later, the victim gave in to his demands, fearing he would hurt or disappoint his teacher. It then went on for several more times.”
Hamzah said that on June 26, the victim returned to Johor with his family where he related his ordeal to them.
“It reached a point where the victim was scared to return to school after the latest encounter,” he said.
Police arrested the suspect, who is being held under remand until Tuesday to facilitate investigations.
The case is being investigated under Section 377(c) of the Penal Code for committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature without consent.
