MALACCA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A six-year-old boy allegedly raped his five-year-old cousin while playing "mummy and daddy" at her home in Pendang, Kedah.

The children were found naked in the house at about 2pm on Dec 29 by their 57-year-old grandmother.

The girl's 32-year-old mother, a medical assistant, lodged a report on New Year's Day but she told police the next day that she was not keen to pursue the case and only did it to enable a medical check to be carried out.

The doctor who examined the girl and found a minor tear in the hymen alerted the Malacca Action Group for Parents in Education (Magpie).
