The trial of three expat men who allegedly killed a fellow national by hitting him with hammers last May will be held at the High Criminal Court, as witnesses will state their testimonies before the judges.
The trio is suspected of killing the victim after luring him to an abandoned land in Al Daih village. The case was first reported when the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science was notified about a severely injured man found in a farm in Al Daih, a couple of kilometres to the west of the Capital. The victim was rushed to Salmaniya Medical Complex after informing the cops that he was attacked and robbed by three individuals. The man succumbed to his wounds and passed away in the hospital.
The trio told the interrogators that they had requested the victim to meet them after he apparently cheated them by selling them a work permit and employment visa, for BD1,000, promising that it is valid for two years, while it was only valid for one year. On May 14, 2019, the Public Prosecution accused the three men of pre-meditated murder and robbing the victim.
