JBK, a 49-year-old Indian manager, allegedly conned an Iraqi doctor by selling him four forged airline tickets for Dh23,000, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.
The victim MMY, 46, testified that he had agreed to buy four air tickets to Canada for himself and family from the accused on June 13.
“At the airport, I was shocked when I was told that the tickets were forged. I called the accused several times until he replied. He told me that he is out of the country and that he will check it on his return,” testified the victim.
Sergeant Isa Abdulrahman testified that after receiving the victim’s complaint, police located and arrested the accused.
“When confronted with the forged tickets, he claimed that he had asked someone called Anis to issue the tickets,” he testified.
The accused confessed to dealing with the victim and to giving him the tickets which were proved to be forged.
The court will give its verdict on January 13.
