A married couple from Pancoran, South Jakarta, has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing their teen daughter. The couple, who has been identified by the authorities as Taufik Hidayat and Mira, allegedly forced their teenage daughter, who has only been identified by her initials KN and is said to be between 15 to 17-years-old, to participate in threesomes with them. 

TribunJakarta.com revealed that Mira is the teen's biological mother and Taufik is the girl's stepfather. South Jakarta Metro Police’s Crime Investigation Unit Chief Commissioner Andi Sinjaya said in a press conference that the alleged abuse started in October 2018.

According to the commissioner, the couple admitted that they wanted to "try a new sensation in their sexual lives" and it ended up being the teen's own mother who forced her into performing the incestuous acts. Kumparan News reported that Andi said: "Taufik said to Mira that he wanted to try a threesome, she allowed it and ordered her daughter to join."

He also added that the victim had been promised a payment of IDR200,000 (US$14.30) as well as a brand new phone by the couple for taking part in the threesome. KN had, allegedly, declined in the beginning but her mother then insisted that she do what she was told. When the teen couldn't take it anymore, she confessed to her biological father, who had divorced Mira eight years before, about the sexual abuse. The furious father then reported the case to the authorities.

The couple was arrested in their home in Pancoran on January 30. If they are convicted, they could each face up to 15 years behind bars for violating the Child Protection Laws in Indonesia. Anyone under the age of 18 is considered a minor in Indonesian law. The authorities say that KN is currently undergoing psychiatric counseling from the Women and Children Protection Unit.

One of the most widespread problems in the country which is also rarely spoken about is incestuous sexual abuse. The Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) noted in their 2018 report that out of the 348,000 cases of violence against women in the country in 2017, around 1,210 were incestuous rape cases with the perpetrators mainly being the victim's fathers, uncles, and brothers.
