BATU PAHAT - Police have detained 11 teenagers for allegedly raping a Form One student in Ayer Hitam.
Batu Pahat OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Wahib Musa said the suspects were detained in an operation codenamed Op Remaja.
He said the school boys aged between 13 and 17 were arrested at several locations in the span of five days.
"Four of them were detained at their schools and seven at their homes," said ACP Abdul Wahib.
He said they were detained following information from the Sultanah Nora Ismail Hospital that a 13-year-old girl could have been raped.
ACP Abdul Wahib said the victim, who is staying with her grandfather, admitted she had sex with more than 10 boys since late last year.
