A Pakistani national has been executed in Saudi Arabia’s Dammam for beating to death a Saudi national.
Mohammed Bilal allegedly killed Abdullah bin Ali bin Eid al-Harbi by hitting him on his head with an iron pipe following a disagreement between them, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
Security authorities arrested the accused, and following an investigation, he was charged with the crime and referred to the general court.
The weapon he used was also produced in court as evidence and, after he was found guilty of the charges, he was sentenced to death.
The verdict upheld by the appeals court and Supreme Court and a royal order was issued to enforce the death sentence.
The execution was carried out on Wednesday in Dammam, in the Eastern Province, the SPA report said.
The interior ministry asserted the keenness of the government “to maintain security and achieve justice” and punish violators of such heinous crimes.
