(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A jobless man and two others barged into the room of some Pakistanis at Al Nakheel in Naif posing as police officers and robbed Dh50,000, the Court of First Instance heard on Monday.

The 29-year-old Pakistani jobless man faced charges of forced robbery and impersonation of public officers.

According to the prosecution records, the incident allegedly happened in August 2010 when the accused with two others posed as police officers and barged into the room in which Pakistanis lived.

The defendant's accomplices were arrested earlier and referred to the court.

The complainant, a 25-year-old salesman, said his co-worker had given him Dh50,000 to keep safely as the bank had already closed that day. The money was for finalising some transactions at the Ministry of Labour and the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigner Affairs and he was supposed to give the money back the following morning.

He kept the money in a steel safe in the room which he shared with others.

Around 9am the next day, the accused and two others barged into their room posing as cops and asked for their identity cards. They tied their hands up and forced the complainant to give them the key and secret number of the steel safe.

They took Dh50,000 from the safe, locked the room door and sped away in a car.

The complainant and his roommates managed to note down the car's registration number after they untied themselves.

A police officer said they arrested one of the accused about three weeks later from Al Quoz in connection with the case. He confessed that he and his accomplices had planned the robbery and led the police to one of them.

The defendant on trial now was arrested recently.
