UAE : a 36 year old indian woman murdered by her husband who then hid the body in the basement
In Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, a 36 year old Indian woman was killed by her husband at her residence. The latter then buried his wife in the basement. Since the man was suspected by the police to have killed his wife, police officers carried out searches in the house. Sniffer dogs were used during the operation and they enabled the police to find the body which was in a highly decomposed state.
The case came to light as the victim’s brother filed a complaint stating that her sibling was missing. Doubts started to surface when the victim’s husband put the house on rent and abruptly left UAE for Kerala.
Commander-in-Chief of Sharjah Police, Major-General Saif Al Ziri Al Shamsi, declared that a missing file was registered by the victim’s brother on April 9 at Sharjah police station.
The woman’s body had been sent to post-mortem to determine the cause of the death. According to Press Trust of India (PTI), an arrest warrant has been issued by Interpol against the victim’s husband.
