Muscat: An Asian person was arrested by the Royal Oman Police (ROP) last week on the charges of murdering his friend in the Wilayat of Seeb. An ROP official said the murder accused and the victim belonged to the same nationality and worked in the construction sector. The accused, who was the supervisor, beat up the victim to death for not having obeyed his orders. Once the accused realised that the victim had died on the spot, he reported it to the police.
The Muscat investigation department and Seeb police station personnel rushed to the spot and found the victim dead, his body covered with blood. After search and investigation, the accused was arrested. He first denied his role in the incident but later confessed to his crime.
The case was forwarded to the Public Prosecution for trial.
