KUWAIT: The Ministry of Interior’s security media and relations department said that criminal detectives managed to unfold the mystery of the murder of an Asian woman whose corpse was burned inside a truck that was found between Jleeb Al-Shuyiukh and Abdullah Mubarak on January 26.
Investigations led to four alleged perpetrators including two Sri Lankan and two Pakistani nationals who were forcing the victim to practice prostitution and then decided to get rid of her when she got pregnant. Case papers indicate that detectives found that the prime suspect, one of the two Sri Lankan men, had killed the woman eight days before her body was found.
The suspect was ambushed and arrested in Andalus and he confessed, leading the police to his accomplices including a Pakistani who left last February, another Pakistani who was deported in March and a Sri Lankan who works as a cleaner at Al-Sabah hospital. The suspect explained that when the woman fell pregnant, the suspect working at the hospital procured some pills to help her abort, but those pills failed and only made her weaker, which made them decide to get rid of her. The four then slaughtered the woman, dumped her body in a truck and set it afire.
