IPOH, Feb 9 (Bernama) -- A silat teacher being hunted by the police in connection with reports of molestation by his female students surrendered at the Taiping Police Station today.

State CID Chief SAC II Wan Mohamad Wan Abdullah said the 47-year-old man, from Air Kuning, Taiping, surrendered at 10am and had been remanded for further investigations.

He said the arrest followed reports by four students, aged 15 and 16, last Friday that he molested them during afternoon silat sessions at a hall in Air Kuning some time between last December and January.

He said the father of eight, who had been teaching silat for 10 years, was said to have called the girls separately into a room off the hall on the pretext of teaching them facial massage but took the opportunity to grope their private parts.

Wan Mohamad also urged other victims to come forward and lodge police reports.
