  • The accused is suspected to have taken advantage of the child suffering from a mental disability

Dubai, August 18, 2017: Sexual assault is not gender-specific. This has been proved yet again as the case of the assault of a mentally-challenged Indian teenager by a middle aged Pakistani man came to light.

A 34-year-old Pakistani man is at present facing charges for sexually assaulting an 18-year-old mentally challenged Indian boy in Dubai. According to a report in the Khaleej Times, the incident took place on February 23, this year, and was reported to the Al Rashidiya police station.
The case was presented to the Court that the accused took advantage of the victim’s mental condition and lured him for a ride in his car. The man picked the boy from his residence in Al Rashidiya and drove him to a remote, dark street where the boy was allegedly sexually assaulted. The man has been charged on the grounds of assaulting a male, as per the report by Khaleej Times.
The 18-year old victim is an Indian-origin student in Dubai and suffers from a mild mental disability that makes him unaware of his actions and behavior.
A police lieutenant was quoted saying that the boy had come to the police station with his father, hoping to lodge a complaint. “The teenager said that he was walking outside his place when he met the defendant and they exchanged mobile numbers”, he said.
The officer further added, “The accused called him shortly later and took him inside his car”. According to the report by ANI, the man allegedly demanded to have a sexual encounter with the boy, which he refused. Following this, the man took advantage of his mental condition and forced himself upon the boy.
The accused was said to have been arrested from his office, two days after the complaint was lodged.
According to the police lieutenant, the accused claimed that he had met the boy outside a grocery in Al Rashidiya, following which they exchanged numbers. The boy had asked the man for Dh10, which he did not give to the 18 year old, who then rode in his car. “He claimed the boy started touching him inappropriately which made him sexually assault him,” the lieutenant added, as per the report by ANI.
According to the forensic reports, the accused’s DNA was found on the boy’s body and his underwear.
The 34 year old accused is currently facing charges of assaulting a male in Dubai.

One is the principal amount, and the second is the interest amount. Whether you are applying for a personal loan, business loan, home loan, car loan, or education loan, EMIs are easy to calculate using the EMI loan calculator.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
