Ainur Asyriq's lawyer, Farhan Read, shielding him from photographers outside the court room
Under Section 293(1)(c) of the Criminal Procedure Code, the Court has discretion to order a youthful male offender to be whipped up to 10 times, instead of being sent to prison.
Judge Manira Mohd Nor also ordered that Ainur Asyriq serve three months of community service, under Section 5(1) of the Compulsory Attendance Act 1954, a provision which gives an alternative to prison time.
Ainur Asyriq had originally claimed trial to two counts of raping the teenage girl but on May 14, changed his plea and admitted to the crime.
The offences occurred at an apartment in Estana Court, in Ukay Bestari, Ampang Jaya on Nov 19 and Dec 7, 2013.
Ainur Asyriq served the whipping sentence in front of a doctor, his parents and a group of observers.
As he was a youthful offender, a thin rotan (the type used for punishing white collar criminals) was used.
Despite wearing jeans, Ainur Asyriq was seen flinching each time the policeman readied to whip him.
He was heard groaning in pain and appeared to be holding back tears after the fifth strike.
