Kuala Lumpur, Feb 24 (ANI): A Malaysian man who claimed that he accidentally scratched his 'itchy' private part in front of a female neighbour had to pay the price for his act.
Ahmad Hairul Nizam Hussin, 23, was fined RM1,500 in default three months' jail by magistrate Mazana Sinin after he pleaded guilty to outraging the modesty of the 41-year-old school teacher, reports the Star Online.
He later paid the fine.
The accused, a factory worker, was charged with exposing his private part to the victim who lived in an opposite flat unit at Taman Pelangi Indah.
He did this at around 6am on Oct 8, 2009.
Ahmad Hairul, who was in his room, had exposed his genitals to the woman who was hanging clothes along the corridor of her home, according to court documents.
In defense, the accused said he always kept his room window open.
"I had just taken a shower and went into my room to change my clothes," he told the court.
"I suddenly felt itchy and scratched my private part, but I didn't know she was watching me," he said.
DPP Chua Shyue Chien prosecuted while the accused was not represented. (ANI)
