Indian on trial in Dubai for inappropriately touching woman



An Indian man has gone on trial accused of inappropriately touching a woma in Dubais Dragon Mart, a court heard here.

The 35-year-old Syrian woman testified that she was in Dragon Mart in August, when the 33-year-old defendant followed her, Gulf News reported on Saturday.

"I was buying some toys with my children when I saw the defendant," she said, adding: "He kept staring at me in a way that scared me. He stood behind me and kept checking my body despite the fact I was wearing non-revealing clothes."

After he touched her, the woman yelled at the defendant and other shoppers gathered around them before police arrived and arrested the man.

The defendant has admitted to touching the woman. The Dubai Public Prosecution charged the defendant with sexually abusing the victim.IANS
