Dammam – Three Saudi nationals involved in the murder of five Indians have been executed by the Authorities in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia on Monday, Saudi Press Agency reported.
Back in 2010, a Saudi national – Jassem bin Jassim bin Hassan al-Mutawa – the main accused along with other Saudis Ammar bin Yusri bin Ali al-Dahim and Murtada bin Hashim bin Mohammed al-Musawi, robbed, murdered and burried five Indians – Fadvila Selim, Shajhan Abu Bakr, Akbar Hussein Bashir, Sheikh Dawood and Lasir Amir Asafa Tam, in their private farm in the Qatif region.
Later in 2014, Ali Habi – a Saudi – found the dead bodies buried 1.5 meters down when he rented the farm for irrigation.
Initially he thought they were animal remains, but to his shock he found clothes next to them, so he immediately informed Police.
Police unearthed two dead bodies, but after further digging they found three more bodies. The bodies had ropes tied around their arms, and mouths filled with cotton and sealed with duct tapes.
Rigorous Police investigations were carried out to trace the killers. A golden ring and Iqama cards of victims helped Police track the killers.
According to the report, the killers “lured” the victims to a farm where they drugged them by mixing pills with their drinks. They were then “beaten, shackled and suffocated” to death and robbed of their belongings, including money and mobile phones. They were also booked for drinking alcohol and smoking cannabis, which is strictly illegal in the Kingdom.
However, the main accused – al-Mutawa – justified the crime saying one of the victims sexually molested their sponsor’s daughter.
After extensive investigations, it was concluded that the defendants were involved in ‘barbarism and corruption’.
On 18th October 2016, Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was executed by Saudi Authorities on the charges of murder.
Saudi Interior Ministry has stressed time and again that Saudi Government aims at achieving justice, fairness and integrity by keeping no one above the Law.
