On February 19, the convict, an Indian manager at Dubai International Airport, kissed the hand of an Emirati female employee, a newspaper reported on Friday.

“I was at Terminal 2 of Dubai International Airport where I work. I took a short break and headed to the Indian airline section, where the defendant was,” the victim said.

The victim, a customer service agent, said the convict joined her in the break room and they spoke about her aviation exam.

The victim said, “I went to the testing room and logged into the system to check the exam. He came and said he could help me. I agreed, then I accidentally dropped my pen.”

“When I reached for it he grabbed my hand and kissed it, telling me not to worry and that he would help me pass,” she added.

Later she and her husband complained to the airport police about the incident which the convict denied in court.

The convict told the court in March, “I never did anything to her, not even touch her. I am innocent.”

However, prosecutors said the Indian manager confessed to the crime during investigation but had denied the charge of sexual assault in the criminal and appeal courts.
