Salesman accused of threatening to send man home a 'dead body'

The defendant is facing a charge of issuing death threats

A 28-year-old salesman is accused of issuing death threats after allegedly blocking a man’s way at the entrance of the Dubai Courts complex and threatening to send him back to India as a “dead body”.

According to court records, the Indian defendant followed a 34-year-old businessman, also from India, after he left the courtroom to the main gate of Dubai Courts. He is accused of then preventing him from leaving while threatening to kill him.

“He told me that if I didn't drop the case I filed against his wife, he would kill me and send me back to India as a dead body. This is not the first time he had done this,” the plaintiff told judges.

There were no details available on the secondary case cited in the statement.

A sales executive who was with the businessman at the time of the incident said he clearly heard the accused issuing threats and saw him block the man’s way.

“He was very angry when he approached us and started screaming threats at the businessman,” said the witness, 40.

The accused was not present to face charges of issuing death threats.

A verdict will be issued on January 30.
