DUBAI // Two security guards were killed after they disturbed a raid to steal more than Dh30,000 worth of diesel, a court heard.
Prosecutors told Dubai Criminal Court that Pakistanis A A, 30, G N, 34, M N, 40, and a fourth man, K R, stole Dh33,500 worth of fuel from a company on March 12, 2010.
Bangladeshi guards A A and G G were stabbed to death during the theft.
K R had been employed at the company but was fired a month before the raid. He agreed to steal the diesel with A A, G N and M N by letting them on to the premises.
Once inside, K R killed A A by stabbing him in the chest, back and abdomen. He then attacked G G, stabbing him several times, which led to his death. K R fled the country the same day, prosecutors said.
Police officer H A, 28, said he received a report about a murder at the company. “We found A A’s body in a narrow alley behind the company’s cafeteria.”
Officers searched the premises and found G G’s body in a rubbish bin 300 metres away.
“A security guard reported the incident after trying to contact the victims to open up the gates to let them in and take over the shift,” said Emirati police officer R A, 30.
According to records, police were able to identify A A, G N and M N and arrest them.
Forensic teams found three knives at K R’s residence and a pair of shoes with A A and G G’s blood on them. KR was apprehended by authorities in Egypt.
A A, G N and M N did not appear in court to enter a plea. The next hearing is scheduled for April 26.
