Man sentenced to 18 years, rotan, for raping 18-year-old Thai hairstylist


KUALA LUMPUR (31/12/2016): A 21-year-old electrician was sentenced to 18 years’ jail and 15 strokes of the cane by the High Court here today for raping an 18-year-old girl while wielding an axe in Nov last year. 

High Court judicial commissioner Datuk Muhammad Shariff Abu Samah increased the jail term and whipping sentence for S. Shasitharan following an appeal by the prosecution. 

Shasitharan, from Selangor, was initially sentenced on May 9 this year by the sessions court to 10 years’ imprisonment, and five strokes of the cane, after he pleaded guilty to the charge.

 When meting out the sentence, Shariff said rape is a despicable act that must be curbed as it could destroy society. 

“You are very inhumane for raping a girl who was on her period and threatening her with an axe during the act. 

“It was a very cruel act and your sentence cannot compare to the damage you have done to the victim,” he said.

 Shasitharan was charged for raping the Thai hairstylist while she was walking to her saloon at Ceria Heights Apartment, Taman Bukit Cheras, at about 8.35am on Nov 21 last year.

 He grabbed the victim’s hand and pulled her into his vehicle while wielding an axe, before raping her. 

He was charged under Section 376(2)(b) of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of between 10 and 30 years, and whipping upon conviction. 

Deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Nazneen Zulkifli prosecuted, while the accused was represented by lawyer C. Selvarajaa.
