Bus driver accused of molesting schoolgirl
Surveillance cameras show the driver kissing the student
Aschool bus driver has been accused of hugging and kissing a nineyear-old girl in the bus, a Dubai Court of First Instance heard yesterday. The girl’s mother said that her daughter was not normal when she left the bus and couldn’t speak.
“She told me that the bus driver hugged her and then kissed her on the hand and the cheek. I was angry and went to the school the next day to ask them to check surveillance cameras in the bus. I saw the driver sitting beside her before hugging and kissing her,” the Arab mother said in official records.
The family alerted Al Rashidiya police station and officers arrested the driver.
The schoolgirl testified that she finished school, and got into the empty bus before waiting for other pupils to come when the driver sat beside her.
She said he kissed her and told her that she is beautiful, but then went to the driver’s seat when other students opened the door.
During investigation, the 33-year-old Pakistani driver confessed to sexually molesting the girl. However, he denied the charge when he appeared in court. A ruling will be heard on January 27.
