Sharjah: Sharjah Police on Sunday arrested a man who they found wandering in a
ladies park wearing women’s clothes.

The Indian suspect, identified as R.S.R., was arrested after the police operation room received a tip-off that a suspicious person was roaming around the women’s park wearing an abaya and shayla.
 
The police quickly reached the scene and arrested the suspect, who, they claim, was also in violation of the residency law as well as the rules concerning public decency.

The case has been transferred to the concerned authorities for further action.
