DUBAI // A tailor who molested a mute woman in his shop has been sentenced to three months in jail.

The Yemeni victim was at the shop in Naif souq with her mother and sister-in-law on July 2 this year when the tailor, T M, 24, from Bangladesh, groped her.

At first she thought it was an accident but when he touched her again she went to her relatives and told them using sign language what had happened.

Her mother called the police and the tailor was arrested.

The Criminal Court ordered the man to be deported after his prison term.
