Prostitute jailed for killing client
A woman has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for murdering a businessman. The Bangladeshi, 29, who is a sex worker, was on trial at Dubai Court of First Instance over the death of Indian Parathi Rahul, 39. The court heard how she locked him inside his apartment after he had drunkenly collapsed, set fire to it and fled on April 3 last year, leaving him to die of smoke inhalation. She denied starting the fire, although she admitted stealing. Prosecutors said Rahul offered the defendant Dhs1,000 and that the pair had sex. Dubai Public Prosecution had earlier asked for the death penalty. She will be deported after serving her jail term.
