In an unrelated case, police detained three men on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old girl at a public park in Jalan Aman here yesterday. The three supects, aged 15, 16 and 39 years, are the alleged victim’s neighbour who were arrested after her mother lodged a police report. Rosli said initial investigations showed that the victim was pregnant and she was raped between 2004 and November last year.
