Dubai, Oct 17 (UNI) An Indian manager has strongly denied that he molested three secretaries, including a Pakistani woman who are claiming that he asked them to 'befriend him to get a promotion and increments.' The 44 year old suspect, identified as SI, was charged with molesting Pakistani secretary ET (26), Filipina RJ (27) and her compatriot RM (26).
''If you want to get a raise and promoted you have to be my girlfriend,'' ET told the Public Prosecution.
''I told him I'm a Muslim and cannot be his girlfriend. He called me a second time to his office and asked me to become his girlfriend,'' she said adding that he molested her before she stormed out of the office and reported him to the general manager.
The Filipina secretary RJ, besides, claimed that the Indian invited her to what was supposed to be a company party but they were alone.
''He blackmailed and threatened to dismiss me after falsely accusing me of forgery before molesting me at the company on a Friday afternoon,'' she claimed, according to a local daily.
The second Filipina girl said the Indian sent her suggestive messages over her cell phone and touched her hair. ''He postponed my annual leave until I went to his office where he molested me,'' she alleged.
The defendant who is currently on bail pleaded innocent before the Dubai Court of First Instance yesterday.
