ALOR SETAR: A 17-year-old girl was abducted and repeatedly raped - because her boyfriend allegedly could not settle his debt with a drug dealer.
The girl was abducted by the dealer - a wanted man in his 50s - and held as a sex slave and raped by six men.
Her ordeal ended early yesterday morning when police finally rescued her.
Acting on a tip-off, police stormed a house here at 6am yesterday and found her with six men, including the drug dealer.
Kedah CID chief Senior Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said his team found her in the storeroom, "scared, traumatised and weak".
He added that the main suspect was wanted for 33 criminal cases including criminal intimidation, possession of dangerous weapons, robbery, drug peddling and house break-ins.
"We believe this is a case of the boyfriend failing to pay his debts. As a result, the girlfriend was abducted.
"Our initial interview with the girl revealed that she was held for a week and was repeatedly raped by the main suspect and this was supposed to go on until the boyfriend settled the sum owed.
"We will call the boyfriend in to give his statement. We believed he knew about it and kept mum," he said.
SAC Mior Faridalathrash said police only received the initial information on Dec 18.
He said that during the raid, police seized two cars - a Proton Perdana and a BMW - two high-powered motorcycles, helmets, several handphones, televisions and speakers, all believed to be stolen.
"The case is being investigated under Section 376 and 342 of the Penal Code for rape and wrongful confinement," he said.
