PETALING JAYA: An 18-year-old Malaysian student in London was allegedly gang-raped by several Russian men, including an intelligence officer who has been charged with the offence.
The Sun tabloid of London (pic), which broke the story on Thursday, reported that the girl had attended a party at the prestigious Bellerbys College in Greenwich, South London, where she is studying.
The report, quoting sources, claimed that the girl was allegedly drugged and then filmed while being assaulted by seven Russian men, including the intelligence officer identified as Oleg Vladimirvich Ivanov, 23.
The attack is said to have happened early last Sunday during the party attended by English language students of the college.
The report stated that police retrieved iPhones with harrowing footage of the victim being gang-raped.
Ivanov was charged with three others identified as Gregory Andreev Melnikov, 22, Norayr Davtyan, 25, and Arnen Simonay, 26, with the offence at the Woolwich Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday and Wednesday.
All four claimed trial and have been remanded.
They will appear at Woolwich Crown Court on Tuesday.
Two other suspects were released on bail while another was released without any charge.
The Sun report stated that the seven men had claimed to be students, but it quoted well-informed sources as saying that Ivanov worked in the Intelligence Section of the Moscow Police.
It stated that Ivanov had only been in Britain for a week before the alleged gang-rape.
The victim was said to have raised the alarm after staggering into a friend’s room.
“She is distraught. She is very young and it is believed she was given a drug before being defiled,” the report quoted a source as saying.
Two students at the college, contacted by The Star last night, were tight-lipped about the incident.
“What we know so far is what everyone has read in the newspaper (The Sun). We refuse to talk about the case as we are not allowed to. Please contact our college officials if you want a comment,’’ said one of them.
The college officials could not be reached for comment.

Prestigious ... Bellerbys College in South London
A RUSSIAN cop has been charged over the gang rape of a teenage student at a London college.
An 18-year-old girl was allegedly drugged and then filmed while being assaulted by seven Russian men, including intelligence officer Oleg Vladimirvich Ivanov, 23.
The attack is said to have happened early on Sunday during a party among English language students at prestigious Bellerbys College in Greenwich, South London.
Police retrieved iPhones with harrowing footage of the Malaysian victim being raped by a succession of men. Ivanov is one of four Russians charged with rape. He appeared at Woolwich Magistrates' Court yesterday with Gregory Andreev Melnikov, 22, who was also charged with attempted rape.
On Tuesday Norayr Davtyan, 25, and Arnen Simonay, 26, appeared at the same court charged with rape. All four were remanded in custody to appear at Woolwich Crown Court on February 1.
They all claim to be students, but well-informed sources say Ivanov worked in the Intelligence Section of the Moscow Police.
Two more Russians have been arrested over the alleged rape and bailed. Another was held and released without charge. Ivanov had only been in the UK for a week before the alleged gang rape. He told other students he planned to go to university here. A source said: "He was quite up front for someone working in intelligence."
A source said last night: "The incident was horrific. Mobile phone footage has been recovered that clearly shows the girl to be under the influence of drugs."
The victim is said to have raised the alarm after staggering into a friend's room. The source said: "She is distraught. She is very young and it is believed she was given a drug before being defiled."
