Lorry driver charged with raping daughter

A LORRY driver was charged in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today with raping, having unnatural sex and molesting his daughter two weeks ago.

The 55-year-old man pleaded not guilty to all the charges, which were read out before judge Emelia Kaswati Mohamed Khalid.

On the rape charge, framed under section 376(3) of the penal code, he is accused of committing the offence on his 23-year-old daughter at the back seat of a lorry in Jalan Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur, between 2.30pm and 3.30pm on September 18.

He faces imprisonment for up to 30 years and shall also be punished with whipping of no fewer than 10 strokes, if found guilty.

For the second charge, he is alleged to have committed carnal intercourse with the woman, an offence under section 377C of the penal code, which provides for an imprisonment for up to 20 years, and also liable to whipping, if found guilty.

He was also charged under section 354 of the penal code with using criminal force on the woman with intent to outrage her modesty. He faces imprisonment of 10 years, or with a fine, or with whipping, or with any two of the punishments, if found guilty.

All the offences were allegedly committed at the same place, time and date.

Emelia did not allow the accused bail after deputy public prosecutor Noorhani Muhmmed Ayub informed the court that the victim was staying with the accused’s second wife, who is not her mother, and there was no guarantee he would not approach his daughter as they were staying in Kuala Lumpur.

Lawyer Mona Anak Leonard Lubon represented the accused.

The court set October 21 for mention. – Bernama, September 30, 2022.
