Singapore student in Hong Kong gang-raped

A SINGAPOREAN undergraduate was gang-raped last month while on an exchange programme in Hong Kong, Hong Kong newspaper Sing Tao Daily reported on Sunday.

The Hong Kong police have arrested a man in connection with the crime, and are looking for two others who are believed to have been involved.

The woman, 22, had gone alone to a bar in Lan Kwai Fong, an area in the Central district with many bars and restaurants, and had become drunk.

Three Nepalese men who worked in the bar - two of whom are believed to be brothers - approached her and invited her to a party on a yacht.

She accepted their invitation, and they took her to a yacht in the Causeway Bay area, where they took turns to rape her, for a total of six times.

The men had left by the time she woke up the following morning.

She made a police report, and was taken to hospital for an examination.

Police in Hong Kong have classified the case as rape, the newspaper said.

Police identified the three men, after visiting the bar and the yacht and reviewing the bar's closed-circuit television footage, and arrested one of the men near Lan Kwai Fong.


UPDATE: Hong Kong gang-rape victim not Singaporean, says MFA

Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said yesterday that the woman allegedly raped by three men was not a Singaporean, as reported by national daily The Straits Times.

Local media had reported that the university student was from Singapore. She was allegedly gang-raped while on an exchange programme in Hong Kong.

This happened on June 29 when the young woman was allegedly raped six times by three Nepalese men on a yacht.
