Dubai: A barber is to spend two years in jail for molesting a seven-year-old boy at his salon. The 36-year-old Pakistani barber, identified as A.A., will be deported after serving his term.
Dubai Public Prosecution charged the accused with molesting the Indian schoolboy, identified as M.N., after luring him into a storeroom inside the salon in Freij Al Marar.
Dubai Court of First Instance heard the victim's father paid Dh10 to the barber on his way to work. Some time later, the schoolboy came to the salon where he was molested after a haircut. He told his mother about his ordeal and the matter was reported to the police.
The barber denied the charge saying he had only cleaned the boy's clothes after his haircut.
