A Bangladeshi national has been sentenced to six months in jail by a Dubai court for molesting an Indian minor girl, according to a media report on Tuesday.
The Dubai Court of First Instance also ordered that the 30-year-old cleaner be deported after completing his jail term, the Khaleej Times reported.
According to the public prosecution's records, the incident happened in February when the Bangladeshi man took the six-year-old girl twice into a lift of her residence and molested her.
The incident was reported to police in March.
The girl's father, a flight attendant, in his complaint said that in the wee hours of March 7, his daughter told him she wanted to sleep next to him as she felt scared.
"She also said that she did not want the accused to come to clean our house again," he was quoted as saying in the report.
The father said that the Bangladeshi cleaner "kissed" and "hugged" his daughter on February 24 and February 28 after taking her inside the lift.
"He would take her to the lift as she played with neighbours' children without any need for it. I checked the surveillance cameras and saw the defendant calling my girl to come to him and then taking her away.
"When I confronted the accused, he claimed that it was a joke and confessed he did a mistake and asked for forgiveness," the father told the prosecutor.
