A housemaid in Ras Al-Khaimah tried to kill her handicapped employer by adding poison to his food but her colleague saved his life when she stopped him from eating, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
Police laboratories are testing the substance added by the unnamed maid to the meal she had prepared for the handicapped boy in an Emirati family, the Arabic language daily Emirat Alyoum said.
The boy’s brother told police another maid in the house saw that maid “grinding” a poisonous substance and adding it to his handicapped brother’s food.
A criminal court in Ras Al-Khaimah adjourned trial of the maid to Wednesday for more evidence, the paper said.
