DUBAI – A Nepalese man who assaulted Indian taxi driver in Dubai will be deported after serving six months in jail for the unprovoked attack.
According to records, the driver, 49, had asked the Nepalese, 32, to leave the vehicle for saying foul words to him during the March 29 incident in Dubai’s Al Rafaa area.
“He stepped out of the taxi and we started arguing and he just attacked me, punching me on the mouth and breaking my teeth,” the driver testified.
A passerby helped the taxi driver restrain the drunk Nepalese before calling the police.
On Thursday, the Dubai Criminal Court found the Nepalese guilty of consuming alcohol without a license, physical assault and issuing insults.
He was sentenced to six months in jail and fined Dh2,000. He will be deported after serving his jail term. ICA/Expat Media
