BERITA Harian reported about a 13-year-old teenager in Betong, Sarawak, who was forced to be her step-grandfather's sex slave for the past five years.
The rape went unreported because the girl feared that the man would refuse to pay her school fees.
The teenager, who said the sexual abuse started when she was eight years old, could not depend on her grandmother as the woman would always side with her husband.
Betong OCPD Deputy Supt Mohd Bukhori Saffai was reported as saying that the incident was only brought 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.
