KUALA LUMPUR: The three Myanmar suspects detained in connection with a horrific gang-rape on a woman who was abducted from a bus stop on Saturday, are freelancers with the United Nations.The three men aged between 20 and 30, police said, worked as freelancers in Malaysia under the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) programme, The Malay Mail reported.
Quoting Subang Jaya deputy police chief Superintendent Tan Ah Chai, he clarified that the victim was a 28-year-old Indonesian woman.
Tan said the victim has undergone a medical checkup following her ordeal. Police are also attempting to establish whether the suspects had recorded the gang-rape on their cell phones.
The three were picked a day after the incident. Police are still pursuing the remaining seven suspects.
It was reported that the woman was abducted about 3pm on Saturday while she was waiting at a bus stop in Puchong Perdana. Two Myanmar men in a Proton Wira drove up to her and threatened her with a parang if she didn’t sit in the back seat of the car.
The terrified woman was taken to a flat in the area, where another eight men were waiting.
The men then tied up her hands and feet, and when she could no longer struggle, the men then took turns raping her.
The men ignored her pleas for help and allegedly recorded the act on their cell phones. They also threatened to kill her if she reported the matter to the police.
The victim was eventually released at 7pm. In her worn state, she managed to contact her friend, whom upon picking her up, promptly rushed her to the Puchong police station to lodge a report.
