Bangladeshi man accused of repeatedly raping disabled girl, for RM10 each time
It is dejectedly harrowing to realise that there is a rise in sexual assault cases over the years. However, it is even more somber to hear of a disabled person getting sexually assaulted.
A disabled underaged girl was allegedly raped by a Bangladeshi man at a fire exit of an apartment here in George Town, Penang yesterday.
According to a report by NST that cites Harian Metro, police sources tell the daily that the Bangladeshi man had committed the act on several separate occasions, where he took advantage of the disabled teen girl.
It was later revealed that the foreigner allegedly handed the girl RM10 each time he raped her- which is speculated to be an initial plan of his, to conjure an alibi to tell authorities, should he be nabbed, that the girl ‘sold’ herself to him.
Yesterday, the girl’s father, together with the security guard of the apartment and several other neighbours in tow mounted a manhunt for the Bangladeshi.
The search for the Bangladeshi was sprung after the father found extensive bruises all over his daughter’s body. At about 5.30pm on the 14th of February 2016, the search party found the man and handed him over to the police.
After being questioned by authorities, the Bangladeshi man then admitted to police that he had merely fondled the teen but did not rape her.
However, doctors who examined the girl at the Penang Hospital where she was sent for a medical examination later told police that there were old tear wounds on her genitals.
A senior police officer contacted by the NST said the case was ‘classified’ as it involved a minor.
It goes without saying that this incident strikes explicit anger and sickens the stomach of anyone who reads it.
Is it reasonable to believe that more sexual assault cases such as this will take place when the 1.5 million Bangladeshi workers get sent to Malaysia in conjunction with our country’s deal with Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina?
