GEORGE TOWN: An air steward walked out a free man after a Sessions Court here acquitted him of raping his female colleague a year ago.

G. Dinesh Kumar, 32, appeared nonchalant in the dock as judge Sitarun Nisa Abdul Aziz delivered the verdict at the end of the prosecution’s case.

The judge ruled that the prosecution had failed to prove a prima facie case against Dinesh Kumar.

Dinesh Kumar was accused of raping the 23-year-old victim at his apartment in Pangsapuri Golf View at about 9am on May 8, 2011.
