Six men claimed trial at the Session Court in Pasir Mas on Thursday to a charge of gang-raping a 17-year-old student at Pasir Parit in Sungai Batu here earlier this month.

One of the accused, Mohd Nuruddin Mohd Fauzi, 22, faced two charges of rape and another of performing oral sex on the victim.

He was charged with gang-raping the girl at 1 am and 3 am on Jun 3. Both charges were under Section 375B of the Penal Code which provides a maximum sentence of 30 years and the rotan.

Nuruddin also faced a charge of performing oral sex on the victim at 3 am at the same place. The charge under Section 377C of the Penal Code carries a maximum imprisonment of 20 years and rotan.

Five others, aged between 20 and 38, were charged with gang rape of the girl at the same location between 1 am and 3 am on the same day.

All the accused were unrepresented.

Bail was not allowed and mention was fixed for Jul 16.

The teenage girl had planned to go out for supper with her boyfriend after 11:30 pm on Jun 2. He took her for a ride, literally and figuratively, by instead taking her to a rest area near their village where his friends were waiting. He and five of his friends then took turns raping her.

The victim lodged a report the next day.
