A su­per­mar­ket worker has been ac­cused of touch­ing a woman’s bot­tom and rub­bing him­self against her as she walked through a busy store. The In­dian man went on trial at Abu Dhabi Crim­i­nal Court yes­ter­day charged with mo­lest­ing the Arab woman. He was de­tained af­ter the in­ci­dent ear­lier this year. “He touched my body in an ap­pro­pri­ate man­ner, and also rubbed him­self on my bot­tom,” the woman tes­ti­fied. “He was fol­low­ing me closely as I walked through the cos­metic aisles.” CCTV cam­eras showed the worker ap­pear­ing to press him­self against her. The footage also showed her an­grily slap­ping him. He said there was “a rush in the su­per­mar­ket” and that he was try­ing to squeeze past. The trial was ad­journed un­til Wed­nes­day.
