Kelantan tahfiz ustaz arrested for allegedly sodomising students
The 39-year-old suspect was arrested after the three boys lodged police reports on April 15.
PETALING JAYA: An ustaz at a tahfiz (religious school) in Machang, Kelantan, was arrested last week after allegedly sodomising three of his students two years ago.

Machang police chief Ahmad Shafiki Hussin said the 39-year-old suspect was arrested after the three boys, who are between 12 and 13 years of age, lodged police reports on April 15.

“In the reports, the victims claimed that they were forced to commit the act by the teacher,” Shafiki said in a Sinar Harian report.

Shafiki said police are investigating the case for sodomy under Section 377C of the Penal Code, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in jail and a whipping upon conviction.
