A 15-year-old girl was allegedly accused by a man while she was giving a trail of an abaya in a shop in Dubai Mall, a court heard on Thursday.
According to the Dubai Court of First Instance, the girl’s mother was busy with another saleswoman when the 31-year-old Indian accused man allegedly tried the abaya on the victim before touching her properly.
The teenage girl went to a Dubai Mall with her family and entered into an abaya shop in Last November. The victim noticed that her mother was busy trying on an abaya and a saleswoman was helping her. The accused took the advantage and tried to touch her body by the lame excuse of helping the victim try on abaya.
A 36-year-old Emirati police officer said: “The defendant told me that he was helping the girl try on an abaya despite it not being part of his duty in the shop. He claimed that he was closing the abaya’s buttons when he accidentally touched the girl.”
The girl became extremely scared and anxious and ran away from him and informed her father. After checking the footage of CCTV it was proven that the man touched her inappropriately.
