Manama, Dec. 6 (ANI): A nun who had accused a man of rape and then confessed to having consensual sex with him, has now agreed to marry him and will embrace Islamic religion, saving herself from serving a jail term.

The 30-year-old nun, B.K., who had been on holiday with friends when she met 40-year-old Iranian A.A., had accused the man of raping her after a desert safari trip, but later admitted in a Dubai Misdemeanour Court that they had consensual sex.

"I asked the court to grant my client an adjournment to be able to finalise the marriage procedures. She decided to convert to Islam. We are seeking a lenient punishment or a suspended imprisonment as soon as we provide the court with the marriage contract," Gulf News quoted the nun, as saying.

According to the report, B.K., who has possibly spent 17 days in provisional detention, has now been granted bail after her lawyer confirmed that she and the man she accused of rape would soon wed.

"The court will grant bail to B.K. after she deposits her passport in custody or a bailer's passport. The bailer will be fined Dh5,000 in case she fails to carry out any law enforcement procedure," a judge presiding the case said,

A verdict on the case is expected by the end of this week. (ANI)
