Man claims trial to raping student

Melaka - The man implicated in an alleged rape and robbery of an undergraduate has claimed trial to nine offences, including committing a sexual act against the order of nature on his victim.

Adam Kamal, 26, from Kampung Bukit Pulau, Bukit Baru here, faces another six charges of car-jacking, possession of stolen items and also trespassing in a university hostel in Jalan Tun Ali here.

The accused, who works at his family-owned furniture shop and is married with one child, was in tears when his pleas were recorded before Sessions Judge Azhaniz Teh Azman Teh and later at the magistrate’s court presided by magistrates Ida Rahayu Sharif and Mohd Firdaus Salleh.

DPPs Ifa Sirrhu Samsudin, Nabilah Nizam and Rebecca Mathan appeared for the prosecution while the accused was represented by counsel Fazarudin Sujairi Md Razi.

Based on the statements of fact, Adam allegedly stole a handphone and RM30 between 6am and 7.45am at the hostel on Aug 29. He was also alleged to have raped and forced the victim to perform a sexual act on him during the same period.

Adam was also alleged to have stolen a Perodua Myvi owned by another female undergraduate, a ring, a handphone, an Ipod Touch4S and a laptop at the same date, time and venue. He faces another charge for trespassing in the hostel’s dormitory.

He was charged under various sections of the Penal Code which carries a total of 20 years’ jail, whipping and a fine.

The prosecution requested both the courts not to grant bail in view of the severity of the offences committed. However, both the Ses­sion and magistrates’ courts still imposed bails between RM1,000 and RM20,000 for each of the offences. He was also ordered to report to Bukit Baru police station until the next re-mention date on Oct 18.
