Kuala Lumpur, June 4 (ANI): It has emerged that a Malaysian taxi driver turned six secondary school students into his sex slaves after he raped them, filmed the act and threatened to make the videos public if they told anyone.
According to the police, the 54-year-old man would wait outside school compounds for students to get into his taxi. He would then pretend he had an emergency to attend to at home.
Once at his house in Taman Muda, Ampang, the man would force the victims into his house and rape them.
He would then later call the girls, aged between 15 and 17, whenever he wanted sexual favours and he would use the recording to threaten them.
The matter came to light only after three students who were unable to bear the torment anymore mustered enough courage to report to the police.
Two victims, who were from the same school in Pandan Indah, Ampang, lodged their reports on May 20 and the third victim reported on May 29.
Police are still looking for the other three victims.
The first victim, who revealed her ordeal to a close friend who had asked her why she took the same taxi every time, lodged the first report.
Police then staked out a taxi stand in Jalan Imbi for three days and nabbed the suspect on May 31. Based on the video recordings on the cabbie's phone, police believe there were six victims in total.
Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Com Abdul Jalil Hassan said they believed there was an accomplice who made the recordings. He said the recordings showed the victims screaming, crying and pleading with the taxi driver to release them.
"The suspect's mobile phone is the most vital piece of evidence," the Star Online quoted him as saying.
He added that the first incident had taken place last August, and he also urged the other three victims to come forward to help in the investigation.
ACP Abdul Jalil said the suspect, who has been a taxi driver for 17 years and has no previous criminal records, lived alone.
He has been remanded for seven days at the Ampang Jaya district police station. The taxi has also been taken to the station. (ANI)
