Man charged with rap­ing his wid­owed mum

New Straits Times - - News -

TAIP­ING: A 20-year-old man was charged at the Ses­sions Court yes­ter­day with rap­ing his bi­o­log­i­cal mother ear­lier this month.

The odd-job worker, who was the sec­ond of five chil­dren, was al­leged to have raped his 49year-old mother at their home in Ka­munt­ing, about 7pm on March 8.

Deputy pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Safiy­atun Ah­madun urged the court to not grant bail as the crime in­volved a par­ent and child who lived in the same home and there was a pos­si­bil­ity of the of­fence re­cur­ring.

Coun­sel M. Kathan, who rep­re­sented the ac­cused, asked for a low bail as his client was earn­ing only RM1,100 a month.

Judge Mohd Sabri Is­mail set bail at RM8,000 with one surety and fixed April 21 for men­tion.

A man and woman, be­lieved to be the ac­cused’s brother and mother, were present in court.

How­ever, they left the court­room with­out talk­ing to the ac­cused.

No bail was posted.

On March 9, it was re­ported that a widow with five chil­dren was raped by her bi­o­log­i­cal son.

Po­lice re­ceived a re­port from the mother and sub­se­quently ar­rested the ac­cused at his work­place here.
