An inmate was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping his cellmate in prison, prosecutors in the United Arab Emirates said.

Now, the prisoner who was arrested on charges of rape, was found not guilty due to lack of evidence.

According to the police investigation, A.A., 33, waited for his fellow inmate to take medication that put him into a deep sleep and then raped him.

The victim A.D., 23, said that around 9:00 p.m., he took five tablets including sleeping pills that were prescribed by his psychiatrist.

He woke up around 4:00 a.m., and felt his cellmate behind him in bed. A forensic examination found the DNA of the accused on the clothing and the body of the defendant.

However, the judge ruled that prosecutors failed to provide enough evidence for a conviction.
