The fam­ily mem­bers of two se­cu­rity guards, who were charged in the Ses­sions Court here yes­ter­day, were seen weep­ing dur­ing and af­ter the charges were read.

The men were charged with com­mit­ting un­nat­u­ral sex­ual in­ter­course with two pri­mary school pupils.

Mokhtarud­din Ab­dul Manan, 57, and L. Joy Lawrence, 38, were each charged with com­mit­ting four of­fences in Fe­bru­ary, on the 8-year-old and 10-year-old pupils at a school here.

The of­fences were al­leged to have taken place at the school’s guard­house and toilets, be­tween 7am and 7.30am.

Deputy pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Shafiq Hasim re­quested for no bail, stat­ing that the of­fences were se­ri­ous and there could be tam­per­ing of the vic­tims and wit­nesses if they were given bail.

Both ac­cused were un­rep­re­sented. Judge Hilmiah Yu­sof did not grant bail and fixed April 3 for men­tion.
