Khaled Mohammed rented a car from Abu Dhabi and came to Dubai on January 2.

He was run over and killed by a car driven by an Arab national while he was trying to cross the road in Al Nasr Square on the same day.

He died on the spot and his body was taken to the General Department of Forensic Science.

Police said since they could not find any ID on the deceased, they took his fingerprints and sent letters to various police stations for further investigation.

After 45 days, the Naif police station called two of his friends when their numbers were found in his mobile handset.

They were asked to recognise his body.

They also called his family after which his sister, Aysha, came to the UAE to receive the body.
