The 29-year-old man has been charged with 2 Counts of Rape by police at the Nadi Police Station. It is alleged that the man had raped his 7-month-old daughter on two occasions since October 2015.

The accused remains in police custody and is expected to be produced at the Nadi Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

The incident, believed to have been happening since last October at a village in the interior of Nadi, came to light after the man’s wife confronted him.

Police Spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu confirmed to Newswire that medical checks have been completed on the seven-month-old girl, proving that the infant has been raped.

Police will also be taking statements from another witness who has more information today.

The baby is being kept with the Social Welfare Department while the 29year old remains in police custody for further interrogation.
