Bangladeshi cleaner jailed, caned for attempted rape
A 32-year-old Bangladeshi cleaner was jailed six years and given eight strokes of the cane on Friday (May 29) for attempting to rape a maid at a Woodlands carpark in November 2013.
Mohd Nurul Islam Md Hatem Ali lied to the maid that there was a fight involving another maid at the deserted four-storey of the carpark to lure her there.
There, he hit, bit and kissed her, before pinning her to the ground in an attempt to rape her.
He also sexually violated her with his finger.
But she struggled violently to prevent the rape, forcing him to give up as he tired out after a few minutes.
