MALAYSIA - One 71-year-old man duped his daughter-in-law into having sex with him by claiming that it will cure a "mystery illness" that she had.
And this went on for eight months.
The suspect told the 24-year-old at their house in Pahang, Malaysia, that he could treat her mystery illness by licking her feet.
The woman had married the suspect's son in September last year.
However, the victim rejected the offer, reported the New Straits Times.
A week later, the suspect approached the victim again and tried to coax her into having sex with him, saying that it was part of the traditional treatment that he had been practising.
A source said: "The victim was reluctant to follow her father-in law's instructions.
"But, she agreed when he told her that a relative had received similar treatment."
She thought that since her father-in-law was genuine in helping her, she agreed to his demands and they had sex up until May.
However, she soon realised that she had been duped and refused to meet the suspect's demands.
He then began peeping on the victim when she was in the bathroom and tried approaching her when they were alone.
The victim lodged a police report after the suspect threatened to beat her up if she did not comply with his demands.
The suspect has gone into hiding after finding out that the police were after him.
District police chief Abdul Razak Hassan confirmed the report and said officers were tracking down the suspect.
