Kuala Lumpur, Aug 6 (ANI): A Malaysian teenager is said to have kept quiet about being forced to be her step-grandfather's sex slave for the past five years, because she feared he would refuse to pay her school fees.
According to the Berita Harian, the 13-year-old teenager in Betong, Sarawak, said the sexual abuse started when she was eight years old, reports the Star Online.
She also revealed that she could not depend on her grandmother, as the woman would always side with her husband.
Betong OCPD Deputy Supt Mohd Bukhori Saffai revealed that the incident only came to light on July 30 when the girl's mother who fetched her from a hostel was puzzled why she didn't want to be sent back to the step-grandfather's house in Skuyat Lama for the school holidays.
The victim subsequently told her mother about the rape and she lodged a report at the Betong police station.
Police are now trying to locate a local man in his 40s who works as a security guard at a logging camp in Nanga Ajau.
Both the man and his wife have since disappeared. (ANI)
