George Town (Malaysia), May 1 (IANS) A Malaysian Indian man, accused of killing his disabled daughter and then secretly burying her, is now suspected of sexually abusing his three other daughters, media reports said.
The 41-year-old odd job worker was arrested Tuesday. One of his daughters, a 12-year-old, told church members what her father had done to them in their home, the Star newspaper said Friday.

The victim revealed how her father also abused her disabled sister who was killed and secretly buried in 2006.

The seven-year-old child, who was murdered, has been identified as Priya.

The man and his family members have not been identified.

The two wives of the man were arrested for concealing information from the police, New Straits Times reported.

They were picked up in front of a restaurant here following a tip-off.

Between them, they have 14 children, including Priya.

The police have dug out a shallow grave here and found the skeletal remains of Priya.

Initial investigations revealed that the suspect could have accidentally beaten his daughter to death with a stick, said a police official.

“One of his sons, now 16, had followed the suspect and witnessed his sister’s burial. It was he who led us to the grave,” he said.

The police also found the dead girl’s hands and feet tied with string when they examined the skeletal remains.

The official said they believe the girl could have been repeatedly struck on the head with a stick as there were crack marks on her skull.

The case has been classified as murder.
