Man chains stepdaughter

KUCHING, MALAYSIA: A 20-year-old woman has lodged a police report against her stepfather for keeping her in chains in the house.

The girl claimed that her stepfather, a foreign national, and her mother took her away from the boyfriend's house at Kampung Rampangi in Santubong and forced her to return to their home in Bandar Baru Semariang on Friday night.

The couple then shackled her legs with chains to prevent her from leaving the house. He secured the chains with a padlock.

However, the woman was able to free herself and sneaked out of the house. A motorcyclist took her to the boyfriend's house.

Her 21-year-old boyfriend, a construction worker, then accompanied her to lodge a police report.

The girl has been living with her boyfriend for about a year. They were planning to get married.

"I could not believe that her stepfather could resort to such an act as only animals are chained up," said the boyfriend.

He said the stepfather had objected to his relationship with his stepdaughter and claimed that the man had assaulted them before.
