KUALA TERENGGANU: A love affair at the tender age of 12 cost a girl here dearly when she was raped by her boyfriend and two others at their rented house on Monday.
The Year Six pupil, from Kampung Teluk Menara in Manir here, befriended the 22-year-old pharmaceutical assistant four months ago and kept in touch with him through the short message service.
On Monday, they decided to meet near the Kubang Jela clinic at 4pm. But when she reached the place, he informed her that he was busy and a friend would pick her up on a motorcycle.
The girl obligingly followed the friend to their rented house in Jalan Sultan Mahmud here.
District police chief Assistant Commissioner Zamri Shamsuddin said the boyfriend and another friend were waiting at the house.
“They took turns to rape the girl and a few hours later sent her to the spot where she had waited for her boyfriend earlier.”
The girl only related the incident to her parents the next day.
She lodged a report at the Kuala Terengganu police station at 9.30pm on Tuesday and was sent to Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital for a medical examination.
Zamri said two pharmaceutical assistants and a restaurant helper, aged between 17 and 28, all from Manir, were picked up from their house at 1.30am on Wedneday and had been remanded for a week to help in investigations. (Pic – File)
