Two fathers will be facing jail time and cane strokes after they admitted to incest on Thursday at a Sessions Court in Melaka

Two men who admitted to raping their daughters face lengthy jail terms and caning in two separate cases at the Sessions Court in Alor Gajah on Thursday.

In the first case, a 35-year-old man pleaded guilty to raping his 12-year-old daughter on two occasions on Nov 4 at his home in Pulau Sebang.

In another case, a 39-year-old unemployed man, also from Pulau Sebang, was sentenced to 15 years' jail and 10 strokes of the rotan.

The father of seven pleaded guilty to raping his 18-year-old daughter at his home last July.
