A MAN caught his 13-year-old niece having sex with her boyfriend at the stairwell of a condominium, reported Sinar Harian.
The man was suspicious of the girl’s behaviour, as she constantly sneaked out of the house between 2am and 4am, and decided to spy on her.
It is understood that the niece was staying with him as her mother was hospitalised.
A police source said the uncle caught the couple in the act and brought the girl home.
The source said the girl often met with her lover at the same stairwell between 2.30am and 4am.
The case is being investigated as statutory rape as the girl is underaged.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed that a 20-year-old man had been detained to assist in investigations.
“The suspect was arrested on Wednesday at the same condominium after a police report was lodged by the victim’s uncle,” he said.
> Harian Metro reported that five men were seriously hurt by a home-made bomb, which they had intended to use for fishing.
The incident happened at 1pm on Wednesday at a house in Kampung Jering, Kuala Balah, Jeli.
The five were making the bomb when it suddenly exploded, which not only injured them but also blew off the zinc roof of the house.
One of the victims, Mohd Khirul Faiz, 18, suffered burns on 40% of his face and body and lost three fingers.
The other victims also suffered burns.
Kelantan police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the case would be investigated under Section 7B of the Explosives Act 1957.
He said police found equipment used by the group to make bombs for fishing.
