Residents of Wadi Bani Ghafir at first thought it was only a rumour. However, when the Royal Oman Police confirmed the news, it came as a big shock to many, according to Morshid Al Hinai, a resident of Rustaq.
“I could not believe that such a thing can happen here but these days, everything is possible,” said Al Hinai.
