Two men have been sentenced to one year in jail here for robbing an Indian man of 200,000 dirhams.

The 38-year-old Indian man was intercepted by the two men in July 2017 when he left his office in Dubai’s Meena Bazaar. “I was passing through a parking lot on my way home when an Asian-looking man holding a vessel with some liquid stopped me,” the Indian man said.
