The Dubai Public Prosecution has referred a 27-year-old Asian employee to the criminal court for brutally assaulting a man to death.
Official records indicate that the suspect and the victim were involved in a brawl when the suspect pulled out a knife to scare the victim, but unintentionally stabbed him in the chest during their fight.
The suspect had other accomplices during the brawl, who were also holding a grudge against the victim and wanted to assault him.
The security guard of the workers’ accommodation testified that once he learnt about the victim’s condition after the stabbing incident, he immediately called police and an ambulance to get necessary medical help, as the victim was still conscious.
He also pointed out that after checking surveillance cameras, he found that the suspect and his accomplices were the ones who started the assault, and had planned it all when they gathered near the washroom area.
