TAPAH: He was the brother from hell. He controlled the life of his 17-year-old sister and stopped her from going to school. He had been arrested for alleged sexual abuse against her three years ago.
The police are investigating the 26-year-old lorry attendant for raping and sodomising his sister at their home in Kampung Rahmat, along Jalan Teluk Intan-Bidor here, said Tapah OCPD Superintendent Wan Azharuddin Wan Ismail.“The man first started molesting his sister in 2014, when she was just 12. The crimes took place when the girl’s two other brothers were not home,” he said, adding that the siblings are orphans.
“The girl did not tell anyone earlier because the brother threatened to not give her food or allowances,” he added.
Supt Wan Azharuddin said the last sexual abuse is believed to have taken place last Friday.
“She could no longer stand it and ran to a relative’s home in Slim River on Thursday and later lodged a police report.
“The girl was brought to the Slim River Hospital for checks before being sent to the Teluk Intan Hospital for further checks.
“A remand order has been obtained for the brother at the Tapah magistrate court,” he said, adding that the case would be investigated under Section 376 (3) and 377C of the Penal Code for incest and carnal intercourse against the order of nature.
The suspect is being remanded until March 28.
