Suva: A 65-year-old grandfather, who is facing one count of rape and one count of sexual assault, was granted bail by the High Court in Suva yesterday.

The farmer and roadside vendor allegedly committed the offence against his granddaughter in Wainibuka, Tailevu in January this year.

He appeared before Justice Achala Wengapulli.

He was released on $1000 bail bond and was required to provide two sureties.

Justice Wengapulli ordered that the accused resides away from where the incident happened.

The accused was also ordered to surrender his travel documents and report to the Nausori Police Station every Saturday between 7am and 7pm.
