KLANG: A 42-year-old father of five is suspected of raping his 14-year-old daughter and her friend.
The incidents came to light after his daughter’s friend lodged a report at the South Klang district police headquarters.
Learning that her friend had lodged the report against her father, the daughter followed suit at the same police station.
The suspect was arrested on Feb 10 and remains in remand, said South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Shamsul Amar Ramli.

According to the daughter’s friend, the suspect asked her to accompany him to a house in Klang on Jan 7, where he allegedly raped her.
He told her to not tell anyone but the girl related it to one of her friends, who then relayed it to the girl’s mother.
The daughter of the suspect claimed that he entered her room sometime in January and raped her.
She also revealed that her father had been violating her since she was 10 years old.
Both victims were classmates who worked at the suspect’s sugar cane juice stall.
The 67 charges encompassed the two police reports lodged against the man, said ACP Shamsul Amar.
“The report by his daughter was tantamount to 58 charges, from the time the suspect raped her when she was 10, ’’ he said, adding that the assaults allegedly took place thrice a week.
The report made by the girl’s friend covered nine charges.
