He faces two more charges of inserting his finger into the genitals of two sisters aged 10 and 14 separately on July 14 and 18 at about 11am and 9pm at a house in Sungai Layar.
It was previously reported that there are 12 siblings in the family.

The incest charges carry a minimum of 10 years in jail and a maximum 30 years with whipping.
