Most arrested individuals are visit visa holders and residents exploiting Ramadan’s charitable spirit for easy money, according to Brig Ali Salem Al Shamsi, director of Suspects and Criminal Phenomena Department at the Dubai Police.

Brig Al Shamsi highlighted the severe consequences of begging, including crimes like theft and robbery, as well as the exploitation of vulnerable groups for illegitimate gain.

He also urged the public to report any beggars found on call centre 901 or the ‘Police Eye’ service on the police app, along with the E-Crime platform.
