Molest of students: Instructor detained

IPOH, Mon. - A 47-year-old silat instructor wanted in connection with several molest cases was detained in Taiping this morning.

Perak Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner II Wan Mohamad Wan Abdullah said the man surrendered at the Taiping police station at 10am after four of his female students, aged between 15 and 16, lodged reports against him last Friday.

The alleged molests took place at a gymnasium in Ayer Kuning, Taiping, during training from 2002 until this year, Wan Mohamad said after attending the Perak Police Contingent monthly gathering here.

Wan Mohamad said the incidents took place when the instructor was ostensibly teaching the victims how to maintain their "image and beauty" and "protect their skin from wrinkles".

The instructor, who is married with eight children, has managed the training centre for the past 10 years.
