Four friends plead guilty to robbing a Bangladeshi man

KUALA LUMPUR – Four friends pleaded not guilt in the Sessions Court, on Friday (7th June), to a charge that they robbed a Bangladeshi last month.

Two women, M. Nanthini and S. Lawannia (both 26), and two men J. Thaneshh (23), and M. Alagendran (40), were accused of stealing RM400 and a phone belonging to Ali Sayed from the RHB Bank in Brickfields, at 9.31pm, on May 12.

The charges were filed under Section 395, which allows for a maximum of 20 years imprisonment and whipping upon conviction.

The same court heard Nanthini and Thaneshh plead not guilty for robbing a Hong Leong Bank card that caused a loss to another Bangladeshi Nasimul Hasan Naim of RM2,000 at Public Bank in Brickfields at 11.20pm, May 19.

The charge was filed under Section 395 (Penal Code).

They also denied the charge of impersonating a police officer in order to rob the victim on the same date, place and time. The three were charged with violating Section 170, the Penal Code. If convicted, they could face a maximum of two years imprisonment or a fine or both.

Lawannia, along with her friend Nur Hikmah Ab Bakar (20), pleaded guilty to the same charge in the same court of conspiring to rob a victim (Nasimul Hazan) at the same place, time, and date. Both women were charged with violating Section 395 and Section 109 of Penal Code.
