The Hush Post: A court in Dubai has charged an Indian driver with groping a woman as she was walking late at night.

On Monday, prosecutors in Dubai accused a 30-year-old Indian driver of catching the Filipina woman by surprise. As per the prosecutors, the man touching her inappropriately and then fleeing the scene, Khaleej Times newspaper reported.

However, the driver has denied the charge, saying that he touched her by mistake.

The complainant is a 25-year-old waitress. She has complained that she did not know the accused before this incident.

“It was at 1.20 a.m. on August 3. I was near a restaurant and was about to go to a supermarket. My friend was with me. There were five to six men coming in the opposite way. One of them groped me intentionally. I yelled at him but he then replied in a very abusive and vulgar manner,” the victim said in her complaint.

The accused did not just ignore her screams for help but also laughed and kept doing his inappropriate acts.

“I followed them and kept screaming until an African man came and restrained the defendant,” the woman said.

The court is expected to pronounce its judgement on October 11, the report said.
