The 40-year-old Pakistani driver allegedly fondled the Filipina maid, when he was in her sponsor’s house in Rashidiya on October 5 last year.

The maid, 24, told the prosecutor that the defendant asked her to bring some water on that day. When she went to the kitchen, he asked her about her work in the house and whether she got an off day on Friday. Her answer was negative.

As she was holding the sponsor’s child with her left hand, the defendant allegedly got close to her. He grabbed the child’s cheek with his hand and then fondled her. He quickly removed his hand. She backed off and told him to go out of the house. When the housewife returned home, the maid informed her about what happened.

The accused admitted during police interrogation and investigation by the Public Prosecution that he fondled the maid against her will. He said it happened in the kitchen after he asked her for some water. He also admitted that he started a conversation with her and asked her about her work and day off.
