Three Youths Arrested for Alleged Rape and Murder
FUJAIRAH — Fujairah Police arrested three young Emiratis for allegedly gang-raping two housemaids and murdering one of them.
The arrests, the first of its kind in the emirate, were made within just 48 hours after the trio committed the crime in a house in Mirbah on Thursday.
Khaleej Times had on Friday reported that rape was suspected in the murder of a Sri Lankan housemaid who was found dead in the house.
Colonel Humaid Al Yamahi, Director of Criminal Intelligence Department, told reporters that the main accused is a 15-year-old boy in whose house the crime took place. The officer said the teenager had helped his friends aged 19, and 23, to enterthe house at 2:30am when everyone else was sleeping.
Al Yamahi said the first housemaid (who is also a defendant)admitted that she agreed with the young house owner to bring in his friends to have a night with her and the other housemaid.
With her help, the youngmenentered the room of the two housemaids and raped them in a row while the second housemaid, 48, resisted strongly.
This enraged the trio who started to beat her up violently.
They suffocated her to death during the resistance, Colonel Yamahi said.
No traces of beating was found on the body of theother housemaid which mean that sheabetted them in the crime, he explained. He said the suspects were referred to the public prosecution for further investigations.
“The UAE in general and Fujairah in particular will remain free and safe from such crimes. This is the first incident of its kind in the emirate of Fujairah,” Al Yamahi said.
