The case of a 42-year-old father who allegedly raped his 13-year-old bio­logical daughter has been trans­ferred to the High Court in Labasa.

The father, charged with one count of rape, appeared before Magistrate Seinile­ba Levaci yesterday.

It is alleged that he raped his daughter sometime in December last year and now she is five months pregnant.

The man told the court that he would seek assistance from the Legal Aid Com­mission.

Magistrate Levaci issued a Domestic Vio­lence Restraining Order (DVRO) and told the accused not to communicate with the complainant.

She asked Police prosecutor Constable Vishal Verma where the victim was and he replied she was at her home in the North­ern Division.

Then she further remanded the accused and stated that the case would be called at the High Court on June 4.
