In a shocking turn of events, a man who brought a 14-year-old girl to a hotel in Miri with the intention of having sex discovered that it was actually his own niece.

The 23-year-old man arrested in connection with the case of a mother who sold her daughter into prostitution, confessed this to the police.

It is not known why he did not recognise her at first.

According to reports, Lawas district police chief DSP Abang Zainal Abidin Abang Ahmad said the man has since been remanded for seven days pending investigations.

"The suspect admitted he had brought the girl to a hotel room, but said he did not rape her.

"He said he did not have sex with her when he found out that she was his own niece," said Zainal.

The man was arrested in front of a restaurant in Lawas town at 9.30pm on Oct 9.

This came after police in Lawas arrested the 30-year-old housewife, who had allegedly sold off her own daughter as a prostitute to pay off her debts, at 2.15pm on Oct 8.

The case first came to light when the headman of the village where the housewife lives, brought the teenage girl to lodge a police report at 10.55am on Oct 8 after learning of her plight.

The girl had accused her mother of forcing her to provide sex.

The mother had allegedly collaborated with the female owner of a karaoke joint to sell the girl's "services" to pay off her debts.

The mother and karaoke owner are now being held at the Lawas police lockup.
