Man, 61, Faces Eight Rape Charges

 

A 61-year-old Kadavu man alleged to have raped and sexually assaulted seven girls between the ages of nine and 13 years old appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

The accused has been remanded in custody.

He appeared before Magistrate Timoci Qalinauci charged with eight counts of rape, five counts of sexual assault, four counts of indecent assault and one count of indecently insulting any person.

The alleged incidents happened between 2011 and 2017.

Police prosecutor Constable Krishan Keshwan made an application for the accused’s rape files to be transferred to the High Court because he was charged with indictable offences.

The case will be called in the High Court on June 8, 2018.
