Alleged molester became the victim of assault by angry mob.
A woman and three men were charged at the magistrate’s court in Alor Setar with the murder of Mohammad Fisol Abu Bakar, who was allegedly involved in a molest case.
The accused, Farah Wahidah Abu Baker, 21, Shahrul Ikhwan Shahbani, 22, Hor Yong Wei, 23, and Chee Woie Yong, 29, were charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, read together with Section 34 of the same Code.

The magistrate set Sep 25 for re-mention pending chemist and full post-mortem reports.
Mohammad Fisol, 31, was set upon by a mob for allegedly molesting a mobile phone shop salesgirl in the women’s toilet of a shopping mall. The assault was committed at 4 pm on May 28 at Plaza Sentosa in Alor Setar.
Mohammad Fisol had slipped into a coma after he was savagely beaten. He died two days later at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital.
Five others accused of the same offence are still at large.
