Dubai: A Pakistani man has gone on trial for allegedly raping a 13-year-old boy, a Dubai Court of First Instance heard on Sunday morning.

According to official records, the incident took place on June 24 this year when the Pakistani teen saw his Facebook friend in a car near a mosque in Al Muraqabbat area after Friday prayers.

“There were three people inside the car and the one I knew via Facebook asked me to come with him for a drive. We stopped to get some pizza and then headed to Al Aweer area,” the teen said in official records.

According to records, the defendant stopped the car, beat up the teen, forced him to take off his cloths and then raped him in front of the other two men against the boy’s wishes.

The defendant later dropped the teen back home, warning him against telling anyone about the incident. However, the teen informed his mother and she took him to the police station and reported the incident.

Police arrested the three suspects, but two were referred to the court.

The 27-year-old defendant was charged with rape while the second defendant, 32, was charged with sexual molestation as the teen claimed that he kissed him.

Both men denied the charges and the trial was postponed to October 2 to prepare the defence.
