A 42-YEAR-OLD man who allegedly raped a seven-year-old girl early this year was denied bail yesterday.

He appeared before magistrate Jerry Savou at the Magistrates Court in Labasa yesterday.

Mr Savou denied bail, saying the allegation was serious and could only be dealt with in the High Court.

The alleged incident happened at a village in Cakaudrove.

It is believed that the man and the victim were from different villages, but were holidaying at the same village.

The man has been remanded at the Vaturekuka Corrections Centre.

The case has been referred to the High Court.
