Two men, one from the Seychelles and the other from Britain, have been jailed for three years for having drunken gay sex in public in Dubai.

The men were named only as P.A., a 28-year-old from Britain, and M.B., a 40-year-old from the Seychelles, in a report by The National.

It said that they had admitted to having sex next to a petrol station near Al Garhoud Bridge in February last year after a drunken birthday party.

A man, who was parked nearby, saw the men and reported them to the authorities.

The police arrived, gave chase and caught the men.

They will serve three years in jail, after which they will be deported to their respective home countries.

In a separate case, two Bangladeshi men who were arrested for having consensual sex in a public toilet at a bus station earlier this month, have received lighter sentences.

H.T., a worker, and S.S., a clerk, confessed to the crime after they were caught by two cleaners, reported GulfNews. H.T. was also charged for consuming alcohol in public.

The 37-year-old men were sentenced to six months in jail for the sex act, with H.T. receiving an additional month for drinking.

They will also be deported after serving their sentences.
