Egyptian jailed for raping Indian housewife in UAE

The man, identified only as A.O., acted as a municipality employee to enter the house of the woman in Sharjah, where he beat up and raped the female resident.

The Sharjah Sharia Court of First Instance sentenced the 25-year-old accused to 10 years in jail to be followed by deportation. However, the victim was not identified.

According to police, the culprit, who is now in Sharjah Central jail, will appeal the sentence, which is now being reviewed by the Appeals Court.

The man was arrested a few days later after he allegedly committed a similar crime. He denied that he raped the woman but was convicted on the basis of the scientific evidence against him.
