Karpal says his hunch is based on what the witness had said with regards to the sodomy having been non-consensual.

High Court Justice Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah says this is the first time that a matter of this nature has come up - the accused is being charged with consensual (sodomy) though the evidence suggests the act was non-consensual.
