This article is more than 12 months old

A 49-year-old man was arrested at his house in Hutan Melintang, Perak for allegedly raping and impregnating his 12-year-old niece.

The girl was supposedly raped several times since December last year when he visited the family home in Sungai Besar, Selangor.

District Assistant Commissioner Noor Mushar Mohd said the child’s parents were not at home when she was sexually assaulted, The Star reported.

ACP Noor Mushar said the man had told the girl several times that he would marry her.

He said: “The girl told her parents of her uncle’s plan to wed her, but they weren’t aware of what was going on until they noticed her expanding waistline.”

The girl was already nine months pregnant when a police report was lodged against her uncle.

ACP Noor Mushar said the man will be remanded for six days to facilitate investigations, the report said.
