During the public prosecution investigation, the victim recalled that on March 1, she was working in the backyard of the sponsor’s villa when the defendant called her, Khaleej Times reported. He wanted her to follow him to the bathroom but she refused, then he hugged and kissed her against her will. She pushed him away and told him not to do it again.

Two days later, around 8 o’clock in the evening, the victim was about to wash clothes when the defendant harassed her again. “He was hugging me from behind and kissing me repeatedly,” she said. “I tried hard to keep him away from me but in vain.”

She claimed that the defendant then dragged her to his bedroom, where he raped her. Later, he dropped her off at the new house of her sponsor.
