The Criminal Investigation Department of the emirate coordinated with the Interpol office at the Ministry of Interior and the Oman Police to extradite him.

A senior CID officer said the man confessed to strangling the woman, Reksana, in the room in a traditional Arab house in Umm Khunoor area after learning that she was indulging in prostitution.

According to the suspect, she had refused to obey his repeated requests to stop entertaining men in her room in the night.

The officer said Al Buhaira police station was informed by a Bangladeshi man who was sharing the same house on April 14 that the body of Reksana was lying in her room. The police who visited the scene were sure that she was strangled to death as her veil was tied around her neck.

“The house has three rooms that were rented to different people. We learnt that five others who shared the rooms fled once they came to know that Reksana was killed,” the officer said

“We managed to arrest the three men and two women. During interrogation, they said they fled the house after learning that Reksana had died. They said another person, who was emotionally involved with the deceased and staying in the room adjacent to hers, vanished right after the crime and they did not know where he was.”

The CID later found out that the man had escaped to Oman and a notification requesting his arrest was sent in coordination with the Interpol. He was brought back to Sharjah in cooperation with the Oman Police.

“During interrogation, he confessed that he loved Reksana and found out that she received men in her room at late hours.

“He asked her to stop indulging in prostitution several times but she refused.

“He then strangled her. Once he knew she was dead, he came out of the room shivering but was seen by the man who rented out the house. The latter advised him to flee the country,” the officer said.

While the prime suspect who is currently detained will be referred to the Public Prosecution on murder charges, the other man will be charged with not reporting the crime and helping the culprit to hide.
