Police obtained a seven-day remand at the Sibu Magistrate’s Court today against an unemployed man as well as his son for alleged incest.
The father and his son, aged 53 and 25 respectively, were arrested yesterday for allegedly raping a seven-year-old girl, who is the grand-daughter of the first suspect and niece of the second suspect.
The girl claimed that she had been repeatedly raped by the two men since last year.
The case came to light when the little girl related her ordeal to her mother, who had been living separately with her daughter since her divorce from her husband.
It was also learnt that the first suspect had just completed his jail sentence in August last year after he was convicted of raping his own daughter in 2008.
