Pinky’s mum said she had been told that the accused were co-workers of her daughter’s. She is due to fly in to Oman in the next few days to speak to police about her daughter’s death.
She said: “Yes, in jail, co-worker, her staff...”
Meanwhile, Robenson Cerezo, father of Pinky’s three-year-old son, said that he hopes police are sure that only one person was involved in Pinky’s death, and said the family hoped for a detailed investigation.
He added: “We don’t have any idea when her body will come, we are waiting for that and expecting that it may arrive soon.”
A spokeswoman for the hotel chain where Pinky worked said: "On behalf of the group, we would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the family of the victim. We are deeply saddened by these events and we will work with the hotel to support the police investigation."
