The United Arab Emirates police arrested 202 beggars in the first two weeks of the holy month of Ramadan in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Among them 112 are male and 90 are female. Most of them are said to have gone to Dubai on tourist visas.

Khaleej Times reported this news in a report last Wednesday.

Dubai police officer Brigadier Ali Salem Al Samsi said that these arrested beggars were begging on tourist visas because of earning more money in less time.

They are basically not professional beggars. During the month of Ramadan, the rich help the poor; Using this opportunity, they were cheating by pretending to be beggars.

Dubai has strict laws against begging. Apart from banning alms, common people are encouraged not to give alms.

According to Dubai Police, those caught defying the guidelines and begging must pay a fine of at least Dh5,000. The accused will be sentenced to imprisonment for more than three months.

Those who organize begging activities and bring people engaged in begging from abroad shall be imprisoned for at least six months and fined one hundred thousand dirhams.
