A Dubai court has charged a Pakistani man for molesting a 12-year-old Indian origin girl inside an elevator of a residential building, according to a media report.
The 35-year-old man, a delivery worker by profession, reportedly touched the girl inappropriately inside the residential building's lift on June 16 while on his way to drop a package.
The man denied the molestation accusation in the Dubai Court of First Instance, the Khaleej Times reported.
At the time of the investigation, a 34-year-old woman said the girl came to her house for their usual private tutorial session in mathematics. "She had to go back to her place to bring some papers she had forgotten. However, when she came back, she looked pale and she was crying and shaking," the report quoted the woman as saying.
After the woman incessantly the girl what has happened, the girl then confessed how the delivery worker walked inside the lift and groped her while asking about a certain address.
The woman straightaway requested a neighbor to check the surveillance cameras in the security guard's room. The CCTV footage showed the 35-year-old man heading to the fifth floor to drop a package but he changed his way and followed the girl without delivering it.
The man was arrested and produced before the court. He will be sentenced on September 16.
