“During the month of March, the victim who was accompanied by her grandmother reported to police that from May last year her own father had been defiling the girl and ended up impregnating her.

She added,” what the father did is contrary to section 138 of the Penal Code”.
The Police Publicist therefore said the suspect will appear in court soon to answer a defilement charge.
