KAJANG: A school van driver has been arrested for allegedly forcing a 10-year-old girl to perform oral sex on him.
OCPD Asst Comm Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yusoff said police received a report from the victim’s father on Friday.
“In it, the girl’s father alleged that his daughter was forced to perform oral sex by the driver.
“The 44-year-old complainant further claimed that the act was witnessed by one of her friends,” he said.
ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said the girl broke down in tears after reaching home that day.
Upon questioning, the victim told her father about what took place.
“He then took his daughter to lodge a report. Initial investigations showed that it was not the first time such an act took place.
“But she could not remember the previous incidents,” ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said, adding that the suspect also threatened to harm her if she informed her parents.
Acting on the report, police arrested a 47-year-old man in Bangi later the same night.
“Background checks showed that the suspect has a record for drug abuse and molest,” ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said.
The suspect has been remanded until May 31 to assist in investigations.

Thai Customs seizes more than 10,000 litres of petrol and diesel
SONGKHLA: The Ninth Division of Customs Department in southern Thailand has seized more than 10,000 litres of petrol and diesel believed to have been smuggled from Malaysia.
Seven people have been detained to facilitate investigations.
Department director Manoch Phitak said the seizure was the result of their operation carried out from May 20 to 25.
“Illegal fuel distributors in southern Thailand are taking advantage of the rising petrol and diesel prices in the country to smuggle fuel from Malaysia which is much cheaper and marketable here,” he told reporters on Friday.
Petrol and diesel prices in Thailand, which have been on the rise, have reached RM3.20 per litre.
Manoch said illegal fuel distributors in southern Thailand used smugglers to bring the petrol and diesel from Malaysia, taking the “rat routes” as well as the legal entry points in Bukit Kayu Hitam and Padang Besar. — Bernama
