Two men who stole Dh200,000 have been sentenced to one year in jail followed by deportation in Dubai.
The 38 year-old Indian national had just left his company at Dubai’s Meena Bazaar on July 31 of last year, when he was intercepted by two men.
“I was passing through a parking lot on my way home when an Asian-looking man holding a vessel with some liquid stopped me.”
Local media sources reported that the attacker threw the liquid on the victim’s face, “burning my face and eyes. I couldn’t see anything.”
“Another person pulled the money parcel wrapped in plastic from my arms and fled.”
Both attackers confessed to the crime. A third man who was their accomplice is still on the run.
A fourth defendant confessed to aiding and abetting the crime by keeping Dh150,000 with him to wire to the attackers later on.
