A 14-year-old orphan was allegedly raped several times in a secondary school by six classmates at the canteen, school field and classroom over a period of three weeks.
It is believed that the group of classmates raped her in groups or one after another.
A week after the orphan was raped at an empty classroom during recess last Tuesday, she found the courage to notify a counselor from her orphanage, where she has been living at since the age of nine.
A medical check on the victim at the Selayang Hospital revealed that she is now a month pregnant and that a pencil was inserted into her private parts. She had complained of pain while she urinated.
Hours after a police report was lodged on Monday, the classmate was detained at the school. Under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape, he has been remanded by the police until 26 April 2010.
