Molest case: Silat instructor released on police bail

TAIPING: A silat instructor remanded for five days to help investigations into molest allegations made by his female students, was yesterday released on police bail.

The 47-year-old man was whisked away from the Taiping magistrate's court with his hands still cuffed.

Friends, students and relatives who waited to see the father of eight were not allowed to talk to him.

One of his victims had even alleged that she had been raped several times by the instructor from June 2002 until June 2003 before she garnered the courage to report the matter.

She said the first time was at his gym in Taman Air Kuning, Taiping.

The girl, one of his students, claimed she was grabbed by the hand from the back and immediately blacked out.
