KUWAIT CITY, Oct 18: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted a bus driver who was accused of molesting a female student. According to the case file, the Public Prosecution accused the bus driver of making the girl sit close to him and touching her inappropriately for 15 days when he dropped her home from school. The prosecution officer affirmed that investigations were conducted and the incident was confirmed. However, the defense counsel Lawyer Mohammad Abbas insisted on the lack of sufficient evidence to prove the allegation against his client. He said it was illogical to say that such an act continued for 15 days before it was reported.
