Fadley Faisal

A Bangladeshi man was brought to court yesterday to face an allegation of outraging the modesty of a 10-year-old girl.

Asaduzzaman Chowdhury is alleged to have lifted the minor from behind, placed her on his lap while hugging her from behind and fondling her private parts.

This was alleged to have occurred on the morning of December 12 at the victim’s family home.

Senior Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana binti Haji Abdul Rahman did not record any plea from the defendant and adjourned it to December 19. DPP Rozaimah Abdul Rahman prosecuted the case.
