Dubai, Apr 6 (UNI) An Indian journalist was acquitted by a court here following his report that a jewellery group had asked its employees to shave off their facial hair.

V M Satish and his British editor Moustafa Noaman Abdul Jabbar Al Rawi were earlier convicted for reporting the case that also spoke of termination of service of the employees who refused to shave off facial hair.

Alukkas Jewellery lodged a complaint saying the paper has reported about 100 employees had, in reaction to this controversial directive, already shaved off their mustaches, Khaleej Times reported.

Defence lawyer had appealed against the earlier verdict saying the news report and its contents were not false.

The defendants had presented two witnesses who confirmed the credibility of the news report, the paper added.
