Two Kuwaiti men and an In­done­sian woman were found dead in an apart­ment in Salwa, a state­ment by the in­te­rior min­istry said yes­ter­day. The min­istry’s me­dia and pub­lic re­la­tions depart­ment said po­lice of­fi­cers also found an in­jured In­dian man at the scene of the crime. He in­formed the po­lice about the three dead bod­ies, said the min­istry, adding that foren­sic teams ar­rived at the scene and an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was launched to de­ter­mine what took place. The in­jured man was taken to Mubarak Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment and is in sta­ble con­di­tion, added the state­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to in­formed sources, one of the Kuwaiti men was a 58-year-old mem­ber of the rul­ing fam­ily. He was shot in the neck. The other male vic­tim, aged 68, was gagged and shot in the face. The 46-year-old In­done­sian woman was gagged and bound and was shot in the mouth. The In­dian man, aged 45, sur­vived af­ter be­ing shot in the back.

An­other source said that the rul­ing fam­ily mem­ber’s sec­re­tary had with­drawn KD 450,000 from the bank and given it to the sheikh a few hours be­fore the killings. Later yes­ter­day, sources said two peo­ple have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the mur­ders.
