The boy reported that the ustaz sexually assaulted him at 10am on Monday, 23 September.

Thankfully, he managed to escape.

"Investigations revealed that the ustaz would ask students to give him a massage before giving them a massage in return. He would then 'massage' his victim's privates," said State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) chief Assistant Commisioner Mohd Nor Yhazid Idris.

"The suspect pinned the boy down next to him and then unzipped the victim's pants. He tried to sodomise the minor, but the boy managed to push him and escape," he added, according to Harian Metro.

Mohd Nor Yhazid said that other students also claimed that they had been violated by the same man
