‘Poisoned’ lover stabs ex-girlfriend over break-up

By Eman Al Baik

A lover tried to commit suicide and to kill his ex-beloved by stabbing her with a knife in a building where she used to work as a maid, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

JKK, 32-year-old Indian guard  is accused of attempting to kill NBA 40 because she broke up with him.

The victim NBA, 40, works for a family who stays in a building in the Al Nahda area and was allowed to stay in a flat on the eighth floor of the same building – with her employer’s relatives.

 “After I finished cleaning my employer’s house, I went down to the other flat in the eighth floor where I was allowed to stay. When I left the house to go back, as I opened the door and saw JKK standing in front.

“He pulled a knife from a laptop bag and stabbed me on the neck saying: “I’ll kill you” and stabbed me again in my belly. I tried to stop him by holding the knife, but he stabbed my arm. I held the knife and started screaming for help. The neighbours came to my help and called the police.

“He tried to kill me because I broke my relationship with him and refused to marry him. During this period he used to threaten to kill me and himself whenever he saw me in the building,” she testified.

“There were blood in the lift and an empty juice container next to the accused who was lying with his hands tied to his back in the corridor of the building, shivering,” testified Major Juma Khalfan who rushed to the scene on July 6 at around 12.30am.

 The accused confessed to having a love affair with NBA since three years and that he used to talk to his beloved in her house.  He told the police officer that he converted to Islam to be able to marry her, but NBA left him.

On the day of the incident he took a knife from his house and put it in the laptop bag and put pesticide in the juice container. As he saw her, he asked her why she broke up but as she did not give him attention he drank the pesticide asking her to clarify. When he felt dizzy, he pulled the knife and stabbed her and fell unconscious.

When the police officer asked him why he stabbed the victim he replied: “Why should I be poisoned and she have life.”

The maid’s employer, Mudar Mohsen, 38, Indian, testified that one of the neighbours knocked at their door and told them that there is a problem on the eighth floor.

“My wife and I rushed down and saw the victim bleeding while the accused was still holding her hand. My wife pulled her away from him and took her to our house and I called the police.”

 The accused confessed to his crime and the court adjourned the case for verdict until February 7.
