Couple found dead in Dubai villa, robbery suspected
The couple ran a business in Sharjah and left behind two daughters, aged 13 and 18. The suspect has been arrested.
A couple was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a gated community in Dubai on June 18, a top diplomat has told Khaleej Times.
Consul-General of India to Dubai, Vipul, confirmed on Tuesday that the Indian couple was found dead in Dubai's Arabian Ranches community.
He said: "We understand this was a robbery as all the jewellery from their home were stolen. The suspect is said to have murdered both the husband and wife."
Vipul added local authorities acted very swiftly and the suspect has been arrested. The couple ran a business in Sharjah and left behind two daughters - aged 13 and 18.
"The older child suffered a few injuries during what is suspected to be a scuffle between the suspect and the family. The girl has recovered from her injuries," added Vipul.
The diplomat said the incident was very tragic, and the Consulate-General of India is in touch with relatives and friends of the family.
"They belong to the Gujarati community and we are in touch with them," he said.
This is a developing story. Khaleej Times has reached out to Dubai Police for comments.
