KUALA LUMPUR: A father pleaded guilty in the Sessions Court here today to two charges of caning his daughters aged 10 and 6 years, resulting in injuries to their hands and backs.
The 34-year-old man who works at a car wash outlet committed the offences at a house in Wangsa Maju here, at 10am on May 12.
The charges are under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001 which carries a maximum RM50,000 fine or up to 20 years imprisonment, or both, upon conviction.
The court fixed Sept 17 for sentencing after deputy public prosecutor Nurliyana Mohd Jafri requested for time to prepare the facts of the case. — Bernama
