Student held after video of indecent act goes viral

— The police have arrested a male student of a secondary school here over a video of him in an indecent act with a female student that had gone viral last month.

Kampar District Police chief Supt Hasron Nazri Hashim said the 17-year-old student was picked up at about 11.30 pm yesterday after the police received a report at about 7 pm.

He said an initial investigation revealed that the student had engaged in the indecent act with a 13-year-old female student at about 6.30 am on Sept 22 in a house and they had recorded the act on video themselves without the involvement of any third person.

The female student had shared the video clip with several friends via WhatsApp and it went viral, he said in a statement today.

Hasron Nazri said the male student was being investigated under sections 8 and 10 of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 as well as Section 377B of the Penal Code.

He also advised the public against having in their possession, circulating or sharing the video clip, saying it constitutes an offence under the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 and offenders are liable to a maximum 15-year jail sentence and up to three strokes of the cane.
