Indian, Pakistani jailed for robbing prostitute in Dubai
The 21-year-old woman, also from Pakistan, filed a complaint against the duo accusing them of kidnapping, raping and robbing her of Dh600.
A 24-year-old Pakistani and a 36-year-old Indian, who picked up a prostitute at a very late hour and had sex with her in the car they were travelling in before robbing her of her cash, have each been sentenced to six months in jail.
The two men were reported to Al Rafaa police after they failed to pay the woman the sum they had agreed on, but rather kicked her out of their car after snatching away Dh600 from her purse.
The duo, working at a car workshop, was initially charged at the police station with kidnap, rape and theft but it turned out later that the Pakistani woman's complaint was false. They were convicted of theft by the Court of First Instance and will be deported after completing their jail terms.
The 21-year-old woman from Pakistan filed a complaint on April 28 against the duo accusing them of kidnapping, raping and robbing her of Dh600.
"She led us to the location where the defendants picked her up from. It happened to be near a hotel and thanks to the surveillance cameras, we could track the accused through the registration plate of their car," a policeman told the prosecutor, adding that the pair tried to speed away from the police car and avoid arrest in vain.
Through investigation, it came to the fore that the woman went willingly with the men and that she was working as a prostitute. She was deported.
