A 28-YEAR-OLD man who was fined by the Ayer Keroh magistrate's court for exposing himself to a student claimed that he had forgotten to close the door of his apartment, reported Sinar Harian.

Teh Zhi Yong was charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act for deliberately exposing himself to Hasliza Mokhtar, 23, at about 8am on Sept 27.

Ms Hasliza had been on her way to class when she saw Teh lying naked on the floor of his home at Jayamuda Apartment in Ayer Keroh, Malacca.

When magistrate Mohd Fairuz Johari asked Teh during sentencing why he had not bothered to wear a pair of shorts or covered himself with a towel, Teh replied: 'I forgot to close the door'.

Teh was fined RM100 (S$42) in default of a month's jail.
