The Free Press Journal - - WORLD -

HOUS­TON: An In­dian man in Dubai has gone on trial for al­legedly mo­lest­ing a five-year-old Ira­nian girl twice, ac­cord­ing to a me­dia re­port. Ac­cord­ing to the pub­lic pros­e­cu­tion records, the 46-year-old man mo­lested the girl out­side her house in Al Bar­sha on two dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions. The girl’s fa­ther, a 44-year-old Ira­nian man­ager, told pros­e­cu­tors that his daugh­ter had “con­firmed that the worker had kissed her on the lips when she was with the neigh­bours’ daugh­ter near the park­ing lot”. “On March 13, my wife and I re­ported the worker to his fore­man. The lat­ter then brought him be­fore us and my girl iden­ti­fied him,” Khaleej Times quoted him as say­ing on Wed­nes­day. The fam­ily then went to the police sta­tion to lodge a com­plaint. “When our girl re­counted what hap­pened with her, she felt so scared and would not en­ter the same room where the de­fen­dant was. She only en­tered af­ter he was taken out­side,” the fa­ther said. The man, how­ever, has de­nied a mo­lesta­tion charge at the Court of First In­stance, the re­port said.
