A teacher from Sek Men Rantau Panjang has been charged in court on Monday with outraging the modesty of a female student, attempting to rape her, and possessing lewd pictures on his mobile phone and laptop computer.

50-year-old Mohd Nasir Abdul Rahman allegedly used criminal force on the 17-year-old student at the school on 16 March 2007. He was also accused of attempting to rape her at PT 1832, Kampung Gual, Rantau Panjang on 14 April 2007. On 24 April 2007, he was accused of having lewd pictures in his possession.

Mohd Nasir pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The teacher’s counsel Mohd Ridwan Muhammad asked for bail as he was a government servant whose career may be affected if not granted bail. Deputy Public Prosecutor Madiah Zainol asked the judge not to allow any bail stating that the accused may intimidate or influence witnesses.

The judge decided to allow bail at RM10,000 with one surety and fixed the case for mention on 26 April 2009.
