According to the court, the Anti-Narcotics department was tipped off that the suspect possessed a quantity of heroin and planning to sell it.

Police laid a trap and sent a plain clothed policeman in disguise as a buyer. The two met on November 7 when the accused handed him over a sample of the heroin for Dh50,000 per kilo. After the police undercover agent agreed to the deal, policemen raided the place and caught him, who was identified as Abdul A.
