UAE: TWO SENTENCED TO DEATH OVER POLICE OFFICERâ€™S MURDER
July 25, 2014: The brutal murder of an Ajman Police officer three years ago has been finally laid to rest with the Ajman Criminal Court sentencing two Arab men to death for the crime.
The two perpetrators, both in their 20s, had been arrested within 48 hours of the crime on February 11, 2011, and had confessed to the killing during interrogation. Police officer Suood Rashid Salim, 26, was stabbed to death near his home in Al Rashidiya area.
The police said Salim received a call from his mother-in-law, telling him that a visitor had arrived at his home looking for him. When he reached home, one of the two men met him inside the house while the other was waiting outside.
When he asked them what they wanted, they called him outside and attacked him viciously.
He was beaten up severely and then stabbed in the shoulder and abdomen. The attackers then fled, leaving him bleeding profusely, which caused his death.
When the police arrived and rushed him to Khalifa Hospital, he succumbed to his injuries. However, the dying man managed to give the policemen a description of the assailants and based on that, the two Arabs were arrested within 48 hours. (Sources: khaleejtimes.com, 25/07/2014)
