In Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, a Pakistani man disguised in a burka was able to lure an 11-year-old boy to his death. The suspect told police that he knew the little boy would never follow a man, but dressed as a woman in the burka, the migrant was able to sexually abuse and then kill the little boy.
The perpetrator was actually known to the family of the little boy, and apparently had a grudge to settle.
The migrant had picked up the boy after prayers at the mosque, and then lured him to a building where he used a rope to strangle him while raping him. He then killed the boy.
The Daily Mail reports:
He is accused of raping the boy and strangling him to death with a rope after picking him up from Ramadan prayers at a mosque.
Azan Majid Janjua was reported missing last week after failing to come home from the mosque.
He was later found by air-conditioning technicians on the roof of the building where he lived.
He was reportedly found partially unclothed with his Quran lying beside him.
The suspect was arrested within 48 hours of the discovery of the body, police said, after forensic evidence linked him to the crime.
They declined to give any further details about the suspect or the evidence incriminating him.
The murdered boy’s father, Dr Majid Janjua, 38, told the local news site that his son was not in the habit of going off with strangers.
He never went outside without our permission,’ said Dr Janjua. ‘It is fate; Allah’s decision. We have to accept it.’
The boy’s mother is understood not to live in the Gulf state but was visiting at the time of the incident, which took place in the first week of the Islamic holy month Ramadan.
