Man kicked to death

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Two men are on trial for caus­ing a man’s death when they kicked him in the head. The two In­dian de­fen­dants, both car­pen­ters, aged 40, de­nied the charge of as­sault­ing the 44-year-old In­dian vic­tim and caus­ing his sub­se­quent death. They con­fessed to con­sum­ing al­co­hol with­out a li­cence and one of them told the judge that he couldn’t re­mem­ber what hap­pened be­cause he was se­verely drunk. Pros­e­cu­tors said that on Fe­bru­ary 12 this year, the three men were con­sum­ing al­co­hol to­gether at a labour ac­com­mo­da­tion in Jebel Ali area, when a fight started be­tween them over an al­leged in­sult from the vic­tim. A 30-year-old Nepalese worker said that he was walk­ing with his friends to the ac­com­mo­da­tion when he saw the fight. “It was 11.30am, when I saw the two de­fen­dants as­sault­ing the vic­tim. He was on the floor and they were kick­ing him re­peat­edly in the head,” the wit­ness said in records. “When we reached them, we smelt al­co­hol on all of them and the two at­tack­ers es­caped and we called po­lice and an am­bu­lance.” Dubai Po­lice man­aged to iden­tify the lo­ca­tion of the two de­fen­dants. “We ar­rested them within 24 hours and they were still drunk,” an Emi­rati po­lice­man said in records. The case was ad­journed.
