Man sexually assaulted a girl for two years, Dubai court hears

The alleged abuse was discovered by the girl's mother who saw an email from the defendant to her daughter containing pornographic material

A man sexually assaulted a girl for two years before her mother accidentally saw a pornographic video the defendant sent her daughter, Dubai Criminal Court heard on Sunday.

The Indian defendant allegedly began molesting the girl when she was 11-years-old at her family’s home in Bur Dubai.

The child told police that touched her inappropriately and kissed her.

“He told me that if I told my family, they will give me up and sent me back to India,” the girl said.

In August, the girl’s mother was checking her daughter’s e-mail when she noticed an e-mail from the defendant titled “+18”.

“I opened the clip and saw it was porn. I was shocked and spoke to my daughter who told me everything. She told me how he used to touch her and then I remembered how she would always be unhappy and even angry whenever he used to visit us at home,” said the 47-year-old mother who called police.

A police corporal said that when he questioned the defendant, he told him he loved the victim and she loved him back.

A medical report showed that the girl had been sexually abused for a long period of time.

When he appeared in court on Sunday, the accused denied charges of sex assault on a minor, sending pornographic material to a minor and inciting sin.

The next hearing is scheduled for December 19.
