UAE authorities to extradite Armenian gang of four

Amira Agarib / 2 March 2014

The Dubai Policeís operation room received information of the crime that took place in a building near the Gold Souq in January.

The UAE legal authorities are in the process of extraditing an Armenian gang of four who fled the country after killing an Indian employee of a trading company in Dubai and robbing gold and diamonds worth millions of dirhams.

The Dubai Police identified the gang within a few hours and alerted the Armenian authorities, who arrested them and recovered the stolen valuables after they landed in their home country.

The Dubai Police’s operation room received information of the crime that took place in a building near the Gold Souq in January. A 24-year-old Indian woman informed the police that her 25–year–old husband, who had a trade office in a residential area, had not come back from his workplace and also did not respond to her phone calls even though he was supposed to return home at 9.30pm.

The police rushed to the man’s office which was located on the second floor and found the lights switched on. On entering the office the police saw the man’s body lying on the ground with his hands and legs tied up and his mouth taped. They also found his face covered in blood. Primary investigations revealed that the man was beaten before being killed.

On examining the crime scene the police found the office safe was busted. The police formed a team and launched an investigation to solve the mystery death. The owner of the trading company, who was in India at that time, told the police that some Armenians — who claimed to be traders — had visited their office to buy gold and diamonds.

The police after finding out that two Armenians A.S and H.M. had left the country early morning acted promptly by alerting the Armenian security officials, who arrested them. The Dubai Public Prosecution is investigating the case to take necessary action.
