ALOR STAR: Being a rape victim is undoubtedly the worst nightmare for any woman, but there are no words that could describe the agony of a 63-year-old woman from Padang Sanai, who was raped twice, while being watched by her husband.

A source said the victim had claimed that her ordeal began on Mar 21 when her 69-year-old husband asked his friend to come over to their house to give her a massage.

The source said the victim had refused to be touched by the 61-year-old man, but caved in for fear of being beaten by her abusive husband.

"The suspect had allegedly started massaging the victim's legs before forcing himself on her as her husband stood by the side their bed and watched his wife being raped," he said.

To add to the sickening act, the victim claimed that the rapist had paid her husband RM20 to watch her being sexually assaulted.

The source added that the victim finally summoned up her courage to lodge a police report yesterday, after she was raped for the second time on Sunday by the same man, who again paid her husband another RM20.

Padang Terap police chief Deputy Superintendent Ahmad Nasir Jaafar confirmed that the victim's husband and his friend were detained yesterday.

He said police have obtained a week-long remand order against the duo beginning today for further investigation.

The case is being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape which carries a maximum of 30 years' imprisonment and whipping, and also under Section 372B of the same Act, which carries a jail sentence of up to one year or fine, or both.
