KOTA BARU: A labourer was jailed for 12 years and ordered to be given six strokes of the rotan for raping his 14-year-old sister-in-law by a Sessions Court here yesterday. 

The accused pleaded guilty to raping the girl at 11, Block 5, Felda Kemahang 3, Tanah Merah on Jan 13.  

Earlier, DPP Wan Azimah Wan Yaacob, in presenting the facts of the case, said the accused allegedly raped the girl when his wife was taking care of their youngest child who was warded at the Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital at Kubang Kerian.  

“He had raped the girl on many occasions, since she was eight years old,'' DPP Wan Azimah said.
