DUBAI // A bus attendant accused of molesting a boy, 6, in front of the child's three siblings was yesterday acquitted by the Criminal Court.

The four children, two sisters and two brothers all younger than 7, said the Indian attendant AK, 23, refused to let them go home to get their fares from their mother.

The children said that when the bus arrived at the school he prevented one of the brothers from leaving, forced him on to his lap and touched him.
