DUBAI: A salesman and his brother engulfed in a Dhs1.3 million dispute with a defaulting trader, butchered the latter’s mediator for conning them out of Dhs150,000 more.

The Asian salesman, 19, and his brother – a businessman, 23 – landed at the Dubai Criminal Court on Thursday. Prosecutors accused them of teaming up to butcher the Pakistani man on Oct.9.

This took place in the basement parking lot of a shopping centre in Al Mamzar at around 11.15pm. The salesman knifed him four times. They fled upon seeing a security guard calling his co-worker.

In court, the businessman denied having a hand in the crome. The salesman said, “I killed him over a money dispute worth more than Dhs1 million. I did it alone. My brother was not at the scene.” Hearing continues on Jan.18.

In Al Muraqqabat Police Station records, a trader reportedly swindled Dhs1.3m from the businessman after deceiving him he would include him in a trade project as his business associate.

Upon learning about it, the salesman said he wished the scam had happened in Afghanistan so that he could kill and chop up everyone responsible. “I don’t fear for my soul and I don’t fear for my head,” he said.

Both contacted the trader for a settlement and he sent the victim to represent him. On his part, the victim asked for Dhs300,000 to help solve the dispute. The businessman made a Dhs150,000 down payment.

At around 10pm, they went to the victim’s office in Naif area to finalise the negotiation process. He showed them an Arabic document indicating they had received Dhs650,000. They noticed it and rejected it.

He promised to settle the matter soon. He asked for the remaining Dhs150,000 of his commission. They convinced him they had it at their ladies garments shop in Al Mamzar. He boarded their car.

He sat in the front passenger seat. The salesman – who had already purchased a knife on purpose – sat in the rear seat. On the way they disputed over the money they had waited in the apparently ghost project.

The businessman was about to park when the salesman wound a ghutra around the victim’s neck to strangle him. The victim resisted and jumped out of the car. The salesman chased him through parked cars.

He knifed him several times leaving a piece of the knife in his skull. The businessman parked and tried dragging the body into the car. The salesman joined. They tried carrying it into the trunk.

A Pakistani security spotted them on camera. He fled out of the CCTV room calling upon his co-worker to call the police. Both defendants dropped the body and sped away towards their apartment in Naif.

An Emirati lieutenant said the salesman told him they disposed of the knife then hurled the bloodstained clothes in a trash container and abandoned the car in the neighbourhood.

They bathed and took a taxi to Al Ain in preparation to flee abroad. A captain said police seized the bloodstained ghutra in their apartment before arresting them at about 8pm on Oct.10.
