Personnel from the Criminal Investigation Department have arrested seven Egyptians and are looking for others for allegedly murdering a Pakistani, reports a local daily. The man’s corpse was found behind a school in Doha.

The victim who worked as a security guard at one of the construction sites in the area had died as a result of a blow to the face with a hammer. One of the suspects is a keeper at one of the gates and the Pakistani manned the other gate. When the main suspect arrived at the gate manned by the Pakistani and ordered him to open it, the Pakistani refused.

According to confidential information, eight Egyptians are involved in the case. Police reports show the suspects tied the victim to a bed and after ascertaining he was dead, carried his corpse and threw it behind a school. The suspects then walked to another gate manned by an Asian and found him fast asleep.

They stole his belongings, returned to the scene of the crime and stole iron bars from the project and escaped in a half lorry. They sold the iron bars for KD 5,000. Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior Assistant Undersecretary for Criminal Security Major General Abdul Hameed Al-Awadhi after making sure the Pakistani was killed launched an investigation into the incident and formed a team to solve the murder mystery.

Plainclothes policemen from the Sulaibikhat police station conducted investigations with a number of relatives and friends of the Pakistani and learned that a quantity of iron which was in the custody of the victim and belonged to the project was missing. The culprits have reportedly confessed to their crime.
