A 20-year-old was detained for sleeping with two women during an unexpected raid by 30 Terengganu Religious Affairs Department (JHEAT) officers on Friday, 6 September
When confronted by officers, the 20-year-old said that he was in bed with the two women because he was "afraid of a large cicak (lizard) in his room"
Assistant Commissioner of Enforcement Nik Zuhaiza Ismail revealed that the man blamed the reptile for scaring him into leaving his room.
He said that he then visited the neighbouring chalet where the women, aged between 20 to 30 years old, were staying.
However, further investigations proved that the three suspects planned to rent the two adjoining chalets together, and that one of the female suspects was a married woman.
In addition to the three suspects, a 40-year-old man was caught and arrested for sleeping with a girl half his age
"After being brought in for questioning, his reason for sleeping with his girlfriend under the sheets was that he had fallen asleep after going to her room to pick something up," Nik Zuhaiza said.
The man, along with other suspects from the raid, were arrested under Section 31 of the Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment Act 2001.
