A 32-year-old Indian man accused of forcing a 10-year-old local boy to perform a sexual gesture on him hired a lawyer yesterday to represent him in the Magistrate’s Court.

Mohamad Ibrurahim is now represented by defence counsel Wafi Sallehuddin of Messrs Ahmad Isa and Partners.

The defendant faces a charge of outraging the modesty of the victim at 11am on June 21 in Kampong Rimba. The defence team has asked for time to seek instructions from their client.

Magistrate Hajah Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid adjourned the case to July 13.
