After being raped by her adoptive father for 14 years, the victim who is now a full-grown adult decided she had enough and reported her guardian for allegedly keeping her as a sex slave for over the past decade.
According to NST, the victim is now 27-year-old and she said she was raped within the first year when she was placed under the care of her adoptive father at the age of 12 in 2004.
That year, her biological parents divorced and the suspect, Mohd Insang, became her foster father along with her two younger siblings.
Lahad Datu district police chief Asst Comm Nasri Mansor said the victim was last raped in December 2018 based on initial investigations.
“She was raped many times while living with him. She couldn’t tell anyone because the suspect threatened to kill her and her family.
“She left his house to live with her biological Mum after she could no longer bear the abuse.
“She was raped multiple times between 2004 and December 2018 in two squatter areas and a housing area in Kg Sarip,” said ACP Nasri yesterday (Aug 4), as quoted by The Star.
The victim lodged a police report on July 28 and she was referred to Hospital Lahad Datu for a body checkup.
Doctors found old tear marks on the victim’s hymen.
The victim did not make a report earlier because the suspect threatened to kill her and her siblings if their secret ever went out, Malay Mail reported.
Nasri said a manhunt has been launched to find suspect known as Mohd Insang.
Astro Awani reported the man is in his 50s and lived around Kampung Sakrip, along Jalan Silam, Lahad Datu. It is located on the East of Sabah, about two and a half hours drive from Sandakan airport.
The police urged those with information to report to the nearest police station. The case is currently investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
If convicted, the suspect would face imprisonment no less than 10 years and up to 30 years as well as liable to whipping.
14 years a sex slave! We could not even begin to imagine what she had to go through.
