KUALA LUMPUR: Police will “highly likely” call back witnesses and suspects linked to an alleged rape in a hotel in Sri Hartamas involving associates of an assemblyman.
“We are still investigating the case and it is highly likely we will call them back for more statements because we are investigating the matter from a different angle,” said City police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim after a Covid-19 walkabout at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman on Sunday (May 9).
He added that two suspects had been arrested in December but were later released.
According to the police report, the 33-year-old victim alleged that the assemblyman had invited her to celebrate his birthday on Dec 4, along with his close associates and two other women.
After dinner, the woman claimed that they went to a karaoke outlet, where she got drunk.
A friend of the victim also claimed that another man joined the group in the room.
The victim claimed she remembered the assemblyman helping her walk after the karaoke session.
Her last memory of the night before losing consciousness was the face of one of the assemblyman's associates on top of her.
According to the police report, the woman woke up around 4.15am on Dec 5 at a hotel alone and realised she was naked.
She also found a used condom inside the bathroom but she could not be sure which one of the assemblyman's associates had allegedly raped her.
The woman then said she collected the items found in the hotel room to be used as evidence.
