PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): A man who was jailed 18 years and ordered to be given six strokes of the cane for committing incest with his 12-year-old daughter had his appeal to reduce the sentence rejected.

Court of Appeal judge Wira Mohtarudin Baki, who was leading the three-man panel, rejected the appeal by the 37-year-old father against the decision of the Shah Alam High Court in 2017.
