(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Court of First Instance on Wednesday charged a 23-year-old Indian driver with molesting a 12-year-old schoolgirl while she was with her siblings in their mother's car who had stepped out for some work.
According to prosecution records, the incident took place in August around midnight in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Rashidiya. The Emirati girl's mother switched off the car's engine, lowered the windows and stepped out of the car leaving her children behind. The accused, who was watching them, came close to their car and asked the girl and her six siblings their names but the kids did not respond to him.
He then put his hand through the rolled down window and groped the girl who slapped him on his hand. He ran away and entered the mall. When the girl's mother returned and learnt about the incident she called the police after informing her husband.
The victim's younger sister (11) said that the defendant had tried to carry her 3-year-old brother, before touching her sister.
