The three allegedly murdered Tara by strangling him with his trousers after they tied his hands and legs and beating him on the head in Umm Khanoor.
According to court documents, the court was not able to trace the parents of the victim as he does not have identification papers.
The convicted men will not be able to obtain a pardon and they will face the Qisas in Islamic Sharia and will be executed for killing the man. (Sources: Gulf News, 23/06/2010)
