A father of 13 was charged on Tuesday with allegedly raping his 12-year-old daughter over the past nine years, Army Radio reported. Police suspect the man also abused another child in the neighborhood, and that the man's 16-year-old son also performed indecent acts on his sister. Police were also investigating whether the man had molested any more of his children. The incident was brought to police attention by a social worker. The girl was removed from the family's home. The suspect has denied the allegations against him and chosen to keep silent on the details of the situation. He was brought for a remand extension later in the day.
