Dubai, May 17 (IANS) A 46-year-old Indian worker has gone on trial here after he allegedly molested a 5-year-old girl, the media reported on Thursday.
According to the public prosecution records, the unidentified Indian man molested the Iranian girl while she was playing outside her house in Dubai's Al Barsha, the Khaleej Times reported.
