SHAH ALAM, Sept 4 ― Police have submitted the investigation papers on the case of a senior citizen who allegedly raped an 11-month-old baby girl to the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP)’s office yesterday.

Shah Alam District Police Chief ACP Baharudin Mat Taib said police had completed the investigation and was now waiting for a response from the DPP for further action.

“We are confident that the suspect, 68, will be prosecuted during his remand period which ends tomorrow,” he told reporters at the Shah Alam District Police Headquarters here yesterday.
