A beggar was arrested as she unknowingly knocked on the door of the policeman. Tee incident occurred in the UAE.

She was presented for trial at the Ras Al Khaimah misdemeanour court. The police charge sheet explained that they have seized an undisclosed amount of money and a bag of clothes from the women.
