Indian in Bahrain on trial for raping minor

Dubai, May 7 (IANS) An Indian, working as a cleaner in a school in Bahrain, has been put on trial on charges of raping a six-year-old schoolboy.

The 24-year-old, whose name has not been divulged, is alleged to have raped the boy in the toilet of a private school in December last year, the Gulf Daily News reported Tuesday.

The accused has pleaded not guilty in a criminal court.

The boy, the son of a policeman, testified that he had left the toilet door open when the cleaner came from behind, grabbed him and raped him.

A medical test later confirmed rape.

The cleaner has claimed that male cleaners are not allowed inside the boys’ toilet.

The court’s ruling is expected June 11.
