Body found in Dubai desert, 6 suspects arrested


DUBAI – Six suspects have been arrested and are facing trial over the death of a person whose body was found dumped in a Dubai desert.

The corpse was found in a remote desert area, said Lieutenant Eng. Mohammad Al Shamsi, Head of Firearms and Tool Marks Section at Dubai Police.

Al Shamsi said that police investigation led to the arrest of six suspects who attacked the victim with knives following a dispute.

The police official said that the suspects buried the murder weapons in a different area, but that police eventually recovered the weapons.

“At first, it was impossible to link crime tools either to the suspects or the case,” he said, noting that erosion and humidity made it impossible to identify the fingerprints on the knives.

However, Dubai Police’s forensic analysts used micro-computed tomography scan that showed the knives were used on the victim.

“Specialists were able to link them to the murder case and provide convicting evidence that could stand in court and serve justice” Al Shamsi said. ICA/Expat Media
