Father caught child's rapist on camera

When the boy told his father what was happening, instead of immediately informing the police, he set up a video camera to monitor his next lesson.

ABU DHABI // A father whose 11-year-old son said he was being regularly raped by his teacher set up a video camera to catch the teacher in the act, a court heard yesterday.

MK, the Bangladeshi tutor, used to go regularly to teach the victim and his sister at their house while their parents were at work, the criminal court heard.

Each time, he would tell the girl to go and play inside in the house. He would then rape the boy.

When the boy told his father what was happening, instead of immediately informing the police, he set up a video camera to monitor his next lesson. It recorded another attack.

At first MK denied the charge in court yesterday, but when he was faced with the footage he confessed.

The case was adjourned until August 26.
