Frightened by the discovery of the victim, the witness then reported the incident to the South Arut Police Station not far from the location.
“The victim is known to be alive, then we take her to Sultan Imanuddin Pangkalan Bun Regional Hospital. Even with her weak condition, the victim said she was mistreated and raped by two of her friends,” the police chief added.
Receiving the identity given by the victim, members of the South Arut Police Station moved quickly to find and arrest two perpetrators who were also under 17 years of age or were underage.
