Maisara Amira Mohamad Asmadi, who had claimed that a police officer had threatened to rape her, has given her statement at the Kuala Lumpur district police contingent headquarters.

The 21-year-old went to the police headquarters at Jalan Hang Tuah with her lawyer, Michelle Yesudas, at 12pm today.

Maisara told Malaysiakini that she came to the police headquarters after receiving a phone call from the police to do so.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar had earlier told Maisara's lawyer to request her client to come to the KL police headquarters and have her statement recorded to speed up investigations on her allegation

"Contact the Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigations Department chief tomorrow morning and bring Maisara to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters so we can speed up investigations," Khalid told Maisara's lawyer G Sivamalar on Twitter last night.

Khalid also said that the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters have recorded statements from six people regarding the case.

Remanded four days

Maisara ( photo ) had called a press conference yesterday to urge a separate team of investigators to probe her claim so as to avoid a cover-up .

She lodged a police report on the alleged rape threat at the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters on May 6, the day after she was released.

Earlier, Dang Wangi district police chief Zainol Samah said his team started investigating as soon as they were told a police report was lodged.

The only female among 23 youths remanded for four days over a May Day rally said a police officer had threatened to rape her, record the rape on video and to sell the video if she did not reply to police questions.

About 20,000 people thronged downtown Kuala Lumpur on May 1 to urge the cancellation of the Goods and Service Tax which was introduced at six percent on April 1, 2015.
