KOTA SAMARAHAN: A farmer and his three sons suspected of raping their own flesh and blood, a 19-year-old girl, were ordered by the Samarahan magistrate court here today to be remanded for seven days to facilitate police investigations.

The four suspects including the girl’s 57-year-old grandfather, the victim’s father, 42, and two of her uncles, aged 26 and 28, were arrested at their house at Kampung Daha Seroban, Serian at 3.30pm on Friday (Aug 11).

The police took an hour to trace the suspects following a report received that the suspects had allegedly raped the victim for six years, and was recently found to be 25 weeks pregnant after a medical checkup at Serian Hospital at 2.30pm on the same day.

The victim is said to have revealed on Friday that she had sex with the four suspects at their house during the said period.

The girl later revealed that her 14-year-old sister was also sexually assaulted by the four suspects since the age of nine.

The remand was granted by Samarahan court registrar Dayang Roselind Awang Mahdini and the case is being investigated under Section 376B of the Penal Code.
