PETALING JAYA: A former policeman was jailed a total of 35 years by a Sessions Court here and ordered to be whipped 15 times for raping a 19-year-old student, making her perform oral sex on him and threatening her last year.

Judge Azhaniz Teh Azman Teh meted out the sentence after the prosecution succeeded in proving a case against Muhammad Fazrul Fauzi, 31.

Judge Azhaniz Teh sentenced Muhammad Fazrul to 20 years’ jail and 10 strokes of the rotan for raping the girl, 10 years’ jail and five strokes for forcing her to perform oral sex and five years’ imprisonment for threatening the victim.

He instructed the jail sentences to run concurrently from yesterday, meaning that the accused would only serve 20 years in prison.

However, the court granted a stay on the sentences but increased the bail to RM55,000 from RM35,000 pending an appeal.

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Nur Aishah Zakiuddin urged the court to mete out a harsher sentence because the accused had taken advantage of the victim when he should have handed her over to the Selangor Islamic Religious Department’s (Jais) authority.

Muhammad Fazrul’s counsel Datuk Ahmad Zaharil Muhaiyar asked for a minimum sentence on the grounds that his client needed to look after his wife and children.

He was charged with raping and forcing the student to perform oral sex on him in a toilet at Level 1B of Dataran Sunway between 1am and 1.45am on Jan 27, last year and was charged under Section 376(2)(f) and Section 377B of the Penal Code.

The third charge read that he had intentionally caused fear in the student by saying that she would be dismissed from the college and detained by Jais, which resulted in the girl giving him RM500.

Based on the statement of facts, the victim was detained by the accused while she was smooching with her boyfriend by the roadside in Kota Damansara and the accused was a policeman attached to the Kota Damansara police station.

The accused then took the girl to the station but did not surrender her to Jais and instead took her out and raped her, asked her for oral sex and also threatened her.
