SHE was only nine when her father allegedly started to treat her as a sex slave to satisfy his bizarre sexual needs.

It went on for two years until the Standard Five pupil of a primary school in Setapak could not stand the pressure of keeping the secret and spilled it all to her school teacher recently.

Accompanied by her teacher and her mother, the girl — who is now 11 — went to the Wangsa Maju police station to lodge a report against her father yesterday.

The girl, the elder of two children, claimed her father had not only abused her for no apparent reason, but also
forced her to perform oral sex on him.

She claimed that the father, an ex-serviceman in his 40s, also sodomised her repeatedly since she was nine at their flat in Setapak.

The latest assault was a few months ago when the mother, a factory worker in her 30s, was at work.

The sad part was, she was not the only victim. The girl said her younger sister, now aged nine, was also used
by their father to satisfy his “bizarre” sexual needs.

All the incidents are said to have occurred at their flat in Setapak while their mother was out at work.

A police source said the father, who was discharged from duty due to disciplinary problems, had not only sexually abused his daughters but had also hit and kicked them for no apparent reason.

It is not known when the father, who currently works as a bouncer, was discharged from duty.

It is learnt that the mother knew what was happening but never brought the matter to police attention.

The source said the girls have been sent to hospital for checkup and observation after their statements were
recorded by a Kuala Lumpur police headquarters Rape, Sexual and Child Abuse Investigation Unit investigation
officer last night.

Police would be contacting Welfare Department officers for further action. Sentul police deputy chief Supt Zainuddin Ahmad, confirmed that a report had been lodged on the case but declined to give further details.
