KUALA LUMPUR: Muhammed Yusoff Rawther has not left Bukit Aman as he is still being questioned by police over allegations of sexual misconduct against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Yusoff, clad in a white-long sleeved shirt and jeans, got out of a black Mercedes Benz car at around 12.45pm Monday (Dec 9) at the Bukit Aman main entrance here.

He was then seen entering the compound together with his lawyer Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla.

Currently, Yusoff was still being questioned by police and has already spent more than six hours at Bukit Aman.

It is learnt that the Bukit Aman Classified Criminal Investigations Unit (D5) was probing the case.

On Saturday (Dec 7), Yusoff lodged a report urging police to investigate his statutory declaration.

Yusoff, a former staff member of Anwar, lodged the report at the Sentul district police headquarters.

He claimed in his report that the alleged incident occurred at Anwar's residence in Segambut on Oct 2 last year.

He also claimed to be worried about his safety and felt threatened by certain parties after holding a press conference over the issue on Wednesday (Dec 4).

Yusoff also made a sworn statement that he was sexually assaulted by the PKR president on Oct 2 last year, however, the matter was denied by Anwar, who claimed he was campaigning in the Port Dickson by-election on that day.
