An Indian housemaid and another Indian domestic servant were also referred to the court on charges of cover-up and not informing the police. The trial of the three accused will start by the end of the current month.

On February 9, an 18-year-old UAE national bride was found murdered in her house in Sharjah. The bride, who was only married a few days ago, was dropped off by her husband at her mother’s house in Sharjah who went to perform Isha prayers. When the mother came back home, she found her daughter stabbed by a knife in different parts of her body and found some of her jewellery scattered on the floor. After a few hours of the murder, the police investigation led to the arrest of Khan, who worked as the gardener, as his fingerprints were found on the knife.

During the police investigation and public prosecution interrogation, Khan confessed to the murder and provided details of the crime. The two servants, who were referred to the court, saw the accused entering the victim’s room and saw the crime, but did not inform the police. Khan has been referred to a medical committee and the medical report proved that he had no mental disorder or psychological problems.
