Taxi groper gets six months in jail

A Pakistani taxi driver was sentenced to six months in jail followed by deportation, for molesting a Zimbabwean woman while she was sitting in taxi’s front seat.

BBJ, 33, is accused of groping FT, against her will.

FT, 26, jobless, testified before the Prosecution that on Friday, January 7, at about 6pm she hailed a taxi after leaving KMK supermarket in the Ras Al Khor area.

“I asked him to drop me home in the same area. I tried to open the rear door but it was locked. The driver asked me to sit in the front seat so I did. He asked me to fasten the seat belt and while doing that he intervened and groped me. Then he put his hand on my shoulder. Then he told me that he admires me and put his hand on my leg. I asked him to stop and got off,” she said.
