Le­gal and Court Cor­re­spon­dent

Ateenager who sus­pected his girl­friend of cheat­ing on him has been ac­cused of beat­ing her and con­fin­ing her and her cousin in his villa.

The girl, 18, with her cousin was in her Emi­rati boyfriend’s bed­room at his res­i­dence in Oudh Al Mu­taina in Oc­to­ber. Ac­cord­ing to the records, the Emi­rati boyfriend, also 18, sus­pected that she was see­ing some­one else, and snatched the girl’s mo­bile and checked her Snapchat pro­file.

When he dis­cov­ered a chain of mes­sages she had ex­changed with an­other man, he as­saulted her. Then he locked her in the room along with her cousin and went out. When she called him and told him that she wanted to leave, the boyfriend said he would come back home and beat her, said the records.

The cousin then re­ported the mat­ter to the po­lice and a pa­trol was dis­patched to the villa. Later, the Emi­rati sus­pect was taken into cus­tody.

The Court of First In­stance will ap­point a lawyer to de­fend the sus­pect on De­cem­ber 23.

Mean­while, the Dubai Mis­de­meanours Court jailed the Emi­rati and his girl­friend for two months for hav­ing con­sen­sual sex. The girl­friend will be de­ported.
