Shalveen Chand
Thursday, April 24, 2014

MEDICAL evidence was produced in the High Court in Suva yesterday in a trial of a man alleged to have raped his 12-year-old granddaughter two years ago.

The elderly man is charged with one count of rape for the alleged offence that took place on July 10 in 2012.

In her sworn evidence, Dr Salma Khan said she examined the child more than a week later after the alleged offence took place.

She said the mother of the child had relayed the history of the alleged offence to her.

She said the alleged rape victim was sedated so she could be medically examined. Dr Khan further told the court the history relayed by the mother and the daughter was consistent with the girl's injuries.
