KUALA LUMPUR: Five Pakistani men were charged at the magistrate’s court with kidnapping a pensioner for RM5,000 ransom two years ago.

Shamas Khan, 45, Malik Muhamad Najam Ghumman, 42, Mian Altamash Ahmed Khan, 32, Muhammad Sufyan, 30, and Hameed Khan, 33, were charged with abducting Tea Kim Wah, 47, with intent to get the ransom by way of wrongfully confining him.

They allegedly committed the offence at a unit in Cheria Height, Apartment Bukit Cheras, here, between 8pm on Nov 16 and 5am on Nov 18.

The five were accused under Section 3 of the Kidnapping Act 1961 (Act 365), which carries a death sentence or life imprisonment and whipping on conviction.

No plea was recorded.

Magistrate Erry Shahriman Nor Aripin said that he would not offer bail to the five, as it was a non-bailable offence. They were told to seek bail when the case was transferred to the High Court.

Nor Diana Nor Azwa prosecuted. The court later set March 13 for mention.

In a Sessions Court before judge Emelia Kaswati Mohamad Khalid, Shamas Khan claimed trial to sodomising Tea at the same place on Nov 16 at about 8pm.

To this charge, Shamas was accused under Section 377C of the Penal Code, which provides a maximum of 20 years’ jail and whipping, if convicted.

Deputy public prosecutor Nadiah Malek Fauzie rejected bail as it was a non-bailable offence.

Judge Emelia fixed Feb 13 for mention. All five were unrepresented.
