Overly-caring elderly uncle held for raping 13-year-old niece

A senior citizen, who jumped at every opportunity to "care" for his grand niece has been arrested in Alor Setar for raping her more than four times since March.

Berita Harian reported the dark secret was exposed after the 13-year-old's father grew suspicious of the overly intimate relationship between his uncle and daughter.

Kota Setar District Police Chief Asst Comm Adzaman Mohd Jan said the victim told her 40-year-old father about the rapes after he questioned her.

He said the rapes happened at the victim's home, while her parents were away.

Adzaman said the unemployed suspect had also given his Form 1 victim a handphone as gift because of their "relationship".

"The suspect has been remanded until May 2 to facilitate investigations for rape," he said.
