The Mansoura Criminal Court on Thursday ordered the release of Essam Farouk Attia, a tuk-tuk driver who allegedly raped a girl child, on an LE500 bail after a month in detention pending trial.
Attia lawyers said the forensic report confirmed that the child was not sexually abused.
The girl's mother had accused the defendant and two others of beating her son, abducting her daughter, and trying to rape her but failing due to her young age.
The defendant denied the charges.
