The RAK Police late on Wednesday solved the mystery behind the death of a 54-year-old Emirati officer.

The body of the victim identified as A.A.A., was found in his car last week down a deep valley at the Dafta area to the south of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

Brigadier Mohammed Al Nubi Mohammed, Deputy-Chief Commandant of the RAK Police, said the victim’s wife and two partners proved to have killed the officer who is also a lawyer.

“The CID teams of the RAK Police initiated investigations and collected all possible evidence until they identified the reasons behind the man’s death.”

According to Brigadier Abdullah Khamis Al Hadidi, Director-General of police operations, RAK, the case unfolded when they were alerted about the deceased.

“The evidence collected aroused the CID team’s suspicion that the man was premeditatedly murdered rather than killed in a traffic accident. The victim’s legs were tied together.”

The corpse was referred to the forensic section of the RAK Police. “The official autopsy issued showed that the deceased sustained several fatal injuries and fractures all over his body, particularly in the head, nose, neck, and spine.”

Brigadier Al Hadidi stated that the field teams started collecting all possible information about the victim’s family, friends and colleagues, and if there were any recent disputes with anyone else.

“When confronted with the evidence, the victim’s wife, an Emirati and identified as R.A.H., along with two other accomplices; H.A.S, an Emirati, and A.Z., an Asian driver who used to work for the father of wife, admitted to the crime.”

The wife said hers was the master mind behind the assassination and that she did it due to complicated family disputes, Brig Al Hadidi noted. “She said she decided to kill him though they have been married for many years and have children.”

The woman even confessed that she had tried to kill him several times before. “Therefore, she decided to kill him with the help of an Emirati man whom she hired for Dh100,000. She also agreed to pay all his financial dues.”

Brig Al Hadidi said the Emirati killer hired the Asian driver against Dh10,000 which the woman paid, as well.

“The sinful wife added strong sleeping pills to her husband’s food and drink to drug him.”

The woman had kept the children in their room at the upper floor, closed all the windows and curtains of the house, and turned off the lights, he said. “She then let her accomplices in from a side door and escorted them to the husband’s room, where he was sleeping.”

Brig Al Hadidi said the two men then covered the husband’s mouth attacked the husband and gave him two insulin injections. He lost consciousness, but was still alive. “The two murderers then shifted the husband to the sitting room as agreed upon earlier.”

However, the woman changed her mind and asked the men to shift the husband to one of his cars which she had already prepared, and to push him down a steep valley.

“The Emirati murderer placed the victim in the front seat and he got into the driver’s seat, while the driver sat at the back. They drove the car to the Ham Valley at Dafta area, RAK,” he said.

Brig Al Hadidi said the murderers stopped the car of the victim at the edge of the valley, stepped down and put the car in drive position so that it fell down the valley. “The victim sustained several gruesome injuries and fractures, particularly in the neck and spine due to the fall, and these put an end to the victim’s life.”
