Grandfather, father and two uncles remanded for raping 19-year-old

KUCHING: The four men arrested for allegedly raping a teenage girl have been remanded for seven days to assist with investigations.

The men are the girl's 42-year-old father, her 57-year-old grandfather and her two uncles aged 26 and 28.

Court registrar Dayang Roselind Awang Mahdini made the remand order when the suspects were produced at the Kota Samarahan court near here on Saturday.

They were arrested at about 3.30pm on Friday after police received an initial report about a pregnant 19-year-old girl who was admitted to the Serian Hospital earlier that afternoon.

Sarawak CID chief SAC Datuk Dev Kumar said the girl claimed she had been raped by the four men since she was 13 years old.

The girl also claimed that her 14-year-old sister had been raped since she was nine.

"All the incidents were said to have occurred at their home at Kampung Daha Seroban, Serian," he said.

It is learnt that the 19-year-old is 22 weeks pregnant.

The suspects are being investigated for incest under Section 376B of the Penal Code.
