PUTRAJAYA- A maintenance company worker has been charged with raping a 15-year-old-girl whom he got to know via the WeChat messaging app.
Muhammad Ajid Nasiruddin, 19, was accused of raping the girl at an abandoned house in Wangsa Maju at 9pm on Aug 7.
He was charged under Section 376(1) of the Penal Code, at the special court for sexual crimes against children here on Tuesday.
Muhammad Ajid later claimed trial before Sessions Court judge Yong Zarida Sazali.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nordiyanasari Omar did not offer bail for fear that the accused would disturb the victim.
In asking for bail, however, the accused’s counsel Aiman Ariff Abdul Azij said his client was the second child of four siblings and was working at a maintenance company.
Judge Yong Zarida fixed bail at RM7,000 pending mention on Oct 23.
She also ordered the accused not to contact or disturb the victim pending disposal of the case. -THE STAR
