TAIPING: A man was charged at the Sessions Court here with raping his 19-year-old daughter at their home in Rantau Panjang, Selama last month.

The 48-year-old however pleaded not guilty when the charge was read before judge Che Noralashiken Abd Razak.

The charge under Section 376B of the Penal Code for incest carries a maximum penalty of 30-year imprisonment and 10 counts of whipping.

Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Sariza Ismail prosecuted while the accused was not represented.

The man later appealed for bail as he needed to find a lawyer, but Sariza objected, as the victim is his biological daughter.

Che Noralashiken denied bail and set Sept 12 for mention.
