GEORGE TOWN: The trial date for the case of a former city councillor charged with molestation has been set for Jan 16 next year by a magistrate’s court here.
Magistrate Qasiratul Jannah Usmani Othman fixed the date when the case came up for management yesterday.
L. Prem Anand (pic), 50, was charged on July 18 with using criminal force to outrage the modesty of a 21-year-old college student outside an entertainment outlet in Lebuh Pantai around 11.30pm on July 6.
DPP Zur Azureen Zainalkefli prosecuted, while lawyer E. Gnasegaran represented Prem Anand, who is out on RM7,000 bail.
It was reported that the college student alleged in her police report that a man grabbed her private parts and asked her for oral sex, and when she refused, he asked her to use her hands instead.
She also claimed that she was offered between RM500 and RM700 to spend a night with the man but she declined.
