Shah Alam

Ismail Shah Abdul Wahab, aged 24, was found guilty of 14 counts of rape, molest, sodomy, oral sex and robbery at the Kuala Lumpur and Ampang courts last year. His victims were mostly teenage schoolgirls, whom he would deceive into his car by asking for directions to the mosque.

Yesterday, Ismail Shah’s appeal against the 70-year jail sentence was rejected in the High Court.

The judge dismissed his appeal and ordered that he be sent back to prison to continue serving his sentence.
