An al­leged hit­man tried to kill a busi­ness­man by stran­gling him with a rope in­side his car, a court has heard.

The 26-year old Pak­istani ap­peared at Dubai Court of First In­stance yes­ter­day, where he de­nied the charge.

Pros­e­cu­tors said that on May 22 this year the busi­ness­man, also Pak­istani, was shop­ping in Dubai Mall with the ac­cused, who is also his rel­a­tive.

The vic­tim claimed they were shop­ping un­til 4.30pm when they went to his car and the ac­cused sat on the back seat claim­ing it was too hot to sit in the front.

The busi­ness­man said: “All of a sud­den a rope was put around my neck and he started to stran­gle me.

“I yelled but he kept pulling the rope try­ing to kill me.”

He said he pressed the car’s horn on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions to try to get help, but the ac­cused dragged him out the car, sat on his shoul­der and started to pull on the rope again. By Ali Al Shouk
