Cook threatens to dismember man having affair with his wife, court told

Cook 'threatens to kill man at Mercato Mall in a series of WhatsApp messages'

A cook threatened to rape, dismember and kill a man unless he stopped having an affair with his wife, Dubai Criminal Court heard.

Prosecutors said the Sri Lankan cook, 36, sent the Indian man WhatsApp messages where he threatened to rape him and then cut off his penis before killing him. He also threatened to rape the man’s mother, court records said.

“I will cut off your manhood and I will kill you at Mercato Shopping Mall,” one of the messages read.

The messages were sent in October and, concerned that the cook would carry out the threats, the man reported them at Al Rafaa Police Station.

The cook was arrested and, during questioning, admitted to sending the messages.

The cook’s mobile phone was seized and the threatening messages found.

He was charged with issuing threats and insults via WhatsApp. Further detail about the alleged affair between the cook’s wife and victim were not disclosed in court records.

The next hearing is scheduled for April 10.
