A 20-year-old woman from Kuala Lumpur has been waiting for nearly two months for prosecutors to press criminal charges against her father, who is said to be a “Datuk Seri”, for sexually assaulting her.
The father is said to own several commercial properties and she had made a police report but is now living in fear as she claimed that the man is “well-influenced enough to drop this case”. She has now gone semi-public with what happened through Instagram and even on a YouTube video to gain more attention as she is “beyond helpless at this point”.
In one posting on Instagram, she even alleged that her father had the capability of snuffing out her life.

The woman also did an interview with investigative journalist Puspavathy Ramaloo on her YouTube channel ‘Reality Check with Puspavathy Ramaloo’.
In the interview, the woman reveals several horrifically details regarding the alleged sexually assaults including an incident where her father placed his hands around her hips and said “you look just like your mother” before forcing himself on her. The collective abuse even led her to contemplate suicide at one point.
Watch the interview here:
Police said the investigation paper had been sent to the Attorney General Chambers (AGC) and that they were waiting for further instructions on the next course of action.
“The investigation paper is still with the deputy public prosecutors,” Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigations Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Saiful Annuar Yusoff said of the latest developments when contacted by Malay Mail.
Following the police complaint, her father, in his 50s, was arrested at his home in the capital city. He was remanded for two days and then released on police bail.
City police chief Commissioner Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin told reporters on 26 January that the investigation was completed and had been submitted to the AGC for the next course of action. Saiful said that no charges have been brought against the father since his release from police custody.
So far, the KL CID chief declined to comment on the possible hold-up when asked further by the news portal.
The young woman first went to the Dang Wangi police headquarters on 14 January and filed a report against her father, claiming he had sexually assaulted her five days earlier at her home. She also claimed that it was not the first time as the sexual and physical assaults had been ongoing for roughly 10 years.
