An expatriate in Dubai has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his countryman over a financial dispute before burying his body in the desert, according to the Dubai Court of First Instance.

The Pakistani man died after his 40-year-old countryman had stabbed him in the neck and severed his spinal cord. The defendant, with assistance from another 30-year-old compatriot, allegedly put the body in a car, drove to a desert off Sharjah and buried the body in October 2019.
