Tahfiz student, 13, claims senior student sodomised him over two-year period

SUNGAI PETANI: A 13-year-old student at a tahfiz school here has claimed that he was sodomised by a senior over a period of about two years.

According to a Sinar Harian report on Tuesday (May 24), the victim’s mother said the eldest of her three sons never said anything about the alleged sexual assaults earlier for fear of being beaten up by his attacker.

The woman, who asked to be identified only as Lina, said the matter came to light when her son ran away from the school after he could no longer stand the attacks.

“I was told last Wednesday by my sister in-law that my son ran away from the school.

“When I asked my son why he did it, he told me he could not stand being sodomised by the senior student… It has been going on since 2020.

“He also claimed that his two friends were bullied by the senior, prompting them to run away from the school as well,” she added.

Kuala Muda OCPD Asst Comm Zaidy Che Hassan confirmed the case when contacted by the Bahasa Malaysia portal and said the victim’s family had lodged a police report.
