DUBAI: A Dubai-based Indian salesman has been accused of sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl.
As reported the minor was assaulted when she was sent by her mother to buy bread from the nearby supermarket at Al Qusais.
The Dubai Court of First instance heard on Monday that the Kenyan woman had asked her daughter to go to a nearby market to buy bread last month when the 23-year-old Indian salesman followed the 10-year-old minor victim out and into the lift, where he sexually assaulted her.
According to her daughter, the mother told police that the accused had asked the child to stay inside the supermarket but her daughter did not listen.
