THE man alleged of attempting to rape an underage girl at the GPPOL area North Guadalcanal has denied the allegation on Tuesday in court.

Deputy Chief Magistrate Ricky Iomea asked the accused in court and he pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The alleged incident was said to have occurred on July 30 this year at GPPOL in the Palm oil blocks.

Evidence produced in court said the accused is from Temotu and at that time of the alleged incident the accused was living at the GPPOL area.

Since he entered a not guilty plea the case is adjourned to October 9 for mention and also for prosecution and defence to update court in regards to the issue of committal.

Office of the Director Public Prosecution appears on behalf of the state.
