A Dubai court has sentenced a Bangladeshi man for attempting to rape a 10-year-old girl.

The 27-year-old man identified only as AB was found to be guilty of trying to rape the British girl who was cycling near her villa.

The court had earlier heard the victim’s statement that she was cycling and searching for mice when two labourers approached her and lifted her.

While one gagged her, the other tried to remove her clothes to sexually assault her.  But the girl who kicked one of them was later left alone.

The case came to light when the girl’s mother called her father when she was unable find the child. The father who rushed to the area saw the girl sobbing near the security gate of the villa clusters.

She later narrated what happened.

The convict, who has 15 days to appeal against the verdict, will be deported after he completes his sentence.
