14-Year-Old Girl Slits Her Wrist After Getting Sexually Assaulted By Her Father
A 37-year-old man was charged with six counts of sexual offences against his teenage daughter at the Sessions Court in Kajang yesterday, 20 September
Bernama reported that the man pleaded not guilty to the charges against his 14-year-old daughter.
The father-of-four had allegedly sexually assaulted his daughter multiple times at his house between March and July this year. In August, he had allegedly committed the act while on a motorcycle when the victim was returning home from school with him.
The sexual assaults had traumatised and affected the young victim so much, to the point that she had slashed her wrist
She is currently receiving treatment at a hospital and has been placed under the Social Welfare Department.
The man, who works as a gardener, was denied bail by judge Surita Budin on the grounds that the victim is the perpetrator's own daughter and of course taking into account the girl's safety. Surita set 17 October for mention, submission of documents, and appointment of a counsel.
All the charges were under Section 14(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017. If proven guilty, the accused may face up to 20 years in prison and is liable for whipping.
This comes just hours after a 51-year-old school teacher was arrested in Siburan, Sarawak, for allegedly raping his student on 19 September
According to a report by the Borneo Post on the case, the man had allegedly committed the heinous act in a car at a secluded location in Siburan, Serian.
The suspect was arrested at his house in Kampung Melayu Tebakang around 7pm on the same day after the victim's mother lodged a police report on the incident.
"The victim's mother lodged a police report alleging that a school teacher had taken advantage of her daughter and had sex with her twice in his car at a secluded area in Siburan.
"The matter was brought to the mother's attention by a teacher of the school where the Form 2 victim is studying," explained State CID chief SAC Datuk Dev Kumar.
The authorities have obtained a remand order against the man for seven days to facilitate investigations. The case is being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
