A beggar claiming physical disability in Ras Al Khaimah was trapped by the owner of a garage, as this video, carried by ‘Al Bayan’, shows.
The man, of Asian nationality, entered the garage with a limp and using a walking stick.
Workers sympathised with him and gave him cash, but the owner of the garage came out of his office and stopped the man. He then called the Ras Al Khaimah Police who found the man had no physical deformity.
Ras Al Khaimah Police have launched a comprehensive awareness campaign to inform residents of the dangers of begging.
