A man was arrested today for raping his own daughter, who is a minor. What’s even more shocking is the fact that the daughter is currently 4 months pregnant.
The 41-year-old was seen in handcuffs behind his back as he was led away by a police officer. China Press reported that he had raped his daughter at their home in Kampung Maju Jaya, Pekan Nenas, on 28th June 2020.
Under the Penal Code Section 376B, the accused could face imprisonment for a term of not less than 10 years and not more than 30 years, and shall also be liable to whipping. The accused pleaded not guilty when the charges were read.
According to reports, the victim was the man’s eldest daughter. Coincidently, it was also her 17th birthday when the father committed the atrocious act. The high school only found out she was 4 months pregnant after going for an examination at a hospital. After confessing that she was taken advantage of, the hospital filed a police report.
The prosecutor requested the court to not allow the man to be released on bail. Since they live under the same roof, it’s likely that the father may take revenge on his daughter.
