A group of teenagers remanded for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in a school in Tawau, Sabah, may have taped the incident on the video, according to a report.
However, the police did not confirm if they have received a copy of the video.
The police were probing the case from all aspects, rather than focusing on the video itself, Tawau OCPD Peter Umbuas was quoted as saying by The Star.
“Our main investigation focuses on the alleged rape and sexual assault of this girl,” Peter responded when asked whether the suspects videotaped the rape incident as reported by Borneo Today.
However, the said Borneo Today article could not be found on its website.
It was reported that a Form Two student was found half-naked in a secondary school in Tawau on Nov 15.
The girl's mother lodged a police report on the same day. Seven Form Five students were subsequently arrested.
The girl was allegedly raped by two boys around 11am while four others were said to have forced her to perform oral sex on them. Another student stood watching the incident.
The suspects were released after three days of remand expired on Nov 18. They were released on police bail to sit for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.
The case is being investigated under Section 375B of Penal Code for gang rape and Section 377A of Penal Code for carnal intercourse against the order of nature.
