Seven held over gang fight that ended in murder


MARANG: Two students who are to sit for the PMR examinations today were among seven arrested over a gang fight in which a 20-year-old factory worker was stabbed to death.

The fight over a girl involved members of rival gangs from the neighbouring villages of Kampung Durian Penjara and Kampung Seberang Jerung.

It was learnt that the main suspect, a 17-year-old dropout, was unhappy that the factory worker's 16-year-old brother had "stolen" his girlfriend.

Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm K. Ma­­no­­haran said initial police investigations showed that the youth and his gang confronted the factory worker and his friends in front of a restaurant at about 8.30pm on Monday.

"The quarrel turned into a fight during which the factory worker was stabbed in the chest," he said yesterday. "He was taken to a hospital and was pronounced dead at 10.10pm."

He said the police identified nine suspects, aged between 15 and 21, who were involved in the gang fight and had nabbed seven of them so far.

ACP Manoharan said the police believe that only the older suspect was involved in the stabbing but were investigating if the others were involved.

Another suspect, a 15-year-old who is one of the two sitting for the PMR, is believed to have taken away the murder weapon.

"We have contacted his parents, who are expected to turn him in," ACP Manoharan said.

He said the police would probe the involvement of the two PMR students in the fight before deciding whether they could sit for the exam.

Two brothers force Year One girl to perform oral sex


MALACCA: Two brothers, one in Year Four and the other in Year Two, allegedly forced a Year One girl to perform oral sex on them after the duo browsed an adult movie site on their school computer.

The brothers apparently had watched a movie at the school's computer lab and later invited the girl to their house in Tanjung Minyak Utama here to re-enact what they had seen.

The girl's 25-year-old mother lodged a police report on Monday after her daughter told her about the incident.

In her report, the mother claimed the brothers had "romanced" her daughter by inviting her on the pretext of helping her with homework.

Sources told The Star that the boys had accessed adult sites that were not filtered by the blocking software.

Malacca Action Group for Parents (Magpie) chairman Mak Chee Kin said the state education department should probe the shocking case as it involved primary school pupils.

"The department should investigate whether children at school are watching pornography," he said, adding that schools should also install web-filtering software to block minors from visiting inappro­priate sites.

"Magpie has received information that some schools here are not stringent in monitoring Internet usage.

"The Education Department should also commission Internet security firms to monitor computer use in schools."

Mak said pupils were becoming competent at bypassing standard blocking systems and firewalls, but added that there was software to monitor web use which could automatically alert teachers when an inappropriate page was being viewed.
