Field investigation officer Inspector V Simon, 38, who is attached to the Perak police Forensics Department, said this when identifying more than 10 case items before judge Datuk Abdul Wahab Mohamed.

“There were eight spots believed to be semen on a white-coloured bedsheet,” said Simon, who has been serving as a field investigation officer since 2018.

“The case items also involved a total of four strands of hairs found on the bed, and two swabs sticks, of semen which had been found on the floor beside the bed at the crime scene.

“Among the other case items were a piece of bedsheet which had been cut, a mop stick, a grey-coloured pair of men’s underwear, a brown T-shirt, a pair of black and red striped shorts, a size S white round-neck T-shirt, blue shorts, pink panties and a blue bra,” he said.

To a question from deputy public prosecutor Liyana Zawani Mohd Radzi, Simon said he had packed the last four case items at the investigation officer’s office.

Meanwhile, Yong’s counsels Datuk Rajpal Singh and Salim Bashir requested to cross-examine the witness tomorrow.

Wahab granted the request and the trial will resume at 10.15am tomorrow. – NST
