By Eman Al Baik

A 44-year-old Indian supervisor AAB, is accused of molesting an 8-year old Briton student in his house by touching his private parts, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

The victim HWA, testified that the accused touched his private parts while working in his room.

The victim’s 45-year old father AD, testified that on September 26, 2011, at around 6pm he received furniture he had bought for his house in Mirdif area.

“Six workers unloaded the furniture into his house.  As they finished my wife told me that our son was molested by one of them. I asked my son... he told me that the worker was in his room fixing furniture and was watching him. He carried my son and put him to the floor telling him 'You are very heavy'. The worker repeated the same gesture twice and the third time rubbed my son's private part,” he testified.

Confronting the workers with the incident, they have all denied molesting the boy. The father called the police and lodged a complaint. The workers also denied the incident but the boy pointed at the accused.

The court adjourned the case for verdict until February 14.
