Al Qusais Police in co-operation with the General Department of Criminal Investigation and the General Department of Criminal Evidence and Criminology, revealed the mystery of the murder of an Asian national inside his room in the Muhaisnah area in Dubai.
According to Brigadier Abdul Halim Mohammed Al Hashemi, Director of Al Qusais Police Station, details of the case date back to an earlier time when they received a report from an Asian stating that upon his return from dawn prayers, he found his colleague killed in his room.
Instantly on receiving the report, Al Hashemi reportedly rushed to the scene with the investigation team where they did not find any evidence leading to the identification of the culprit.
Al Hashemi added, “There was no previous enmity between the victim and any person. When we interrogated the colleague who reported the incident, we noticed a small blood stain on his clothes, which was proved by lab to be of the dead person."
On being questioned, the colleague confessed that he took advantage of the victim’s sleep, crouched on him and hit him on the head with an air rifle until he died.
He added he did that due to differences between them, specially that the victim used to talk badly about things related to honour.
The two defendants planned the murder, and lured the victim to the UAE with promises of employment, then executed their plan within months of his arrival.
