Dubai airport cleaner charged with attempted theft

HandcuffsAuthorities have charged the 34-year-old Indian cleaner for stealing sunglasses from the bin at Dubai International Airport. However, the cleaner rubbished the charges adding that he found the piece of trendy sunglasses in a rubbish bin placed in a corner of the airport.

The suspect, J. K. was earlier produced before the Dubai Court where he denied the charges and asked for apology. Speaking in the court before Presiding Judge Hamad Abdul Latif Abdul Jawad, J. K. said, "I found the sunglasses in the garbage and took it."

Prosecutors, however, said that it was due to vigil of the police, the attempt of stealing sunglasses was foiled.

Meanwhile, the court would take up the matter by March end.
