TUARAN, SABAH, Wed - ANOTHER deaf and mute girl has lodged a report against a teacher at the special school she is attending, claiming that the 28-year-old man had outraged her modesty.

Yesterday, police had arrested a 32-year-old warder at the same school located in the district, after a deaf and mute girl claimed that he had raped her sometime in October last year.

District police acting chief Assistant Superintendent Asaad Kalong said the suspect in the molest case was detained this morning at the school following the report lodged yesterday.

"We will get remand orders as soon as possible to facilitate investigations into both cases. The warder and the teacher are attached to the same school. Both cases happened sometime in October last year at the staff quarters," he told reporters at his office, here today.

Asaad said the victim in the molest case was also 13-years-old. The victim had related the incident to her parents who then lodged a report on her behalf.
