KOTA BARU: The 15-year-old girl who was allegedly gang-raped by more than 30 people in Keterah on May 20 could have also been sodomised.
District OCPD Asst Comm of Police Azham Othman said police would be scrutinising the medical report to facilitate investigation.
"We are expected to wrap up the case in due time as the suspects between the ages of 20 and 30 came from the same kampung.
"We also cannot exclude the possibility that the teenager was also sodomised,
"And police have reasons to believe that almost all the suspects were high on drugs when they allegedly committed the crime," ACP Azham told reporters at the court complex here on Wednesday.
ACP Azam also confirmed that four people including a 17-year-old girl had been remanded for seven days in connection with the case.
He added that eight more suspects were in police custody and police were expected to make more arrests over the next couple of days.
He said all the three men were tested positive for pil kuda (amphetamine).
"We have set-up a special police task force to solve this case and I am confident that those responsible will be brought to justice," he added.
On May 20, a Form Three pupil from a school in Guchil, was gang-raped by more than 30 men in an empty house in Ketereh.
The girl who suffered bleeding and intense pain on her private parts had gone to the house after her 17-year-old friend had asked her favour to pick her up in Ketereh.
However, when the victim and her male companion arrived in Ketereh, she was brought to an old empty house, which is a drug addict haunt, where 30 people took turns to rape her after.
