Tailor jailed for molesting minor

The Bandar Magistrate’s Court yesterday sentenced a 30-year-old Indian tailor to one year imprisonment and two whippings, after he was convicted of outraging the modesty of his client’s five-year-old daughter while taking measurements at his tailor shop. Shahban Alam claimed his innocence towards the charge of using criminal force to outrage the modesty of the victim at the time the incident took place in January 2019.
