7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS - @alial­shouk

Kick­ing his work­mate in the groin for be­ing late has led to a sus­pended prison sen­tence for a taxi driver in Dubai.

The 25-year-old driver was wait­ing for his Pak­istani coun­try­man to de­liver the cab when he as­saulted him with an­other friend and dam­aged the vic­tim’s tes­ti­cles.

Dubai Court of First In­stance was told that 53year Pak­istani vic­tim re­turned the car 10 min­utes late to the ac­cused, who was an­gry and started as­sault­ing him.

The vic­tim said in records: “I fin­ished my shift and re­turned the car 10 min­utes late, when he be­came an­gry and start in­sult­ing me.

“He as­saulted me and I fought back but he kicked me in my tes­ti­cles and knocked me to the ground. I couldn’t stand be­cause of the pain and an­other per­son was as­sault­ing me too.”

Other work­ers sur­rounded the fight and called for an am­bu­lance and po­lice while the at­tack­ers es­caped from the scene.

“I was trans­ferred to Dubai Hos­pi­tal and spent sev­eral days re­cov­er­ing. Af­ter a cou­ple of days I felt pain again and took a va­ca­tion for treat­ment in my coun­try,” the vic­tim added.

A med­i­cal re­port showed that the vic­tim has suf­fered log-term dam­age to his tes­ti­cles.

Dubai Po­lice ar­rested the de­fen­dant, who con­fessed to the as­sault but the sec­ond sus­pect is still at large.

The ac­cused was given a three month sus­pended prison sen­tence.
