An Indian man, charged with molesting a woman from Philippines while she was shopping, denied the charge in a court here Tuesday.
The Dubai Criminal Court heard that the 26-year-old man, a plumber and identified by the initials of his name, FF, slapped the woman on her behind while she was shopping at Nesto Supermarket in Jebel Ali here, The National reported.
The prosecutor said that the defendant assaulted the 34-year-old victim Aug 9 last year.
“I was picking some vegetables I needed when a man passing behind me suddenly slapped me on my behind,” the Filipina said.
The woman reportedly screamed at him and threw a carrot that she was holding at that time at him.
The woman called police and they found the incident recorded on the supermarket’s surveillance camera.
The court's verdict is likely to be delivered Feb 11.
