Dubai: A man went on trial for allegedly assaulting his former girlfriend with a shoe, a Dubai Court of First Instance heard on Sunday.

The 21-year-old Indian girl testified that she knew the victim through Facebook and he told her that he wanted to marry her but she refused and told him that she doesn’t want to meet him anymore.

The 25-year-old Pakistani defendant annoyed her with his calls and she decided to inform his father.
