REMBAU, Jan 27: A teenage girl who was reportedly raped by her father in Kendong here was brought to the crime scene yesterday as police looked for new evidence.
Rembau district police chief DSP Hazri Mohamad said the victim, 17, had been treated at Tuanku Ampuan Najihah Hospital in Kuala Pilah and was now under the care of the Social Welfare Department.
He said that the remand period for rape suspect, 47, which was due to end today, will be extended for four days to allow for further investigations.
“When we are done, we will hand the investigation paper to the public prosecutors for further action. We have taken the victim from the hospital for a while to the crime scene.
“The victim is still traumatised. She had previously stayed with her grandmother since she was four and moved to her father’s house in June 2022,” he told reporters in Pekan Kota here today.
Media outlets reported previously that the suspect had been arrested for allegedly beating and kicking the victim after she informed the suspect’s girlfriend about the alleged rape.
Hazri said that the case is being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for deliberately causing injuries, Section 18(A) of the Domestic Violence Act 1995 and Section 376(B) of the Penal Code.
