A 30 year old Emirati man who was accused for raping and murdering a Pakistani boy in the Mosque’s bathroom has been sentenced to death.

The incident took place on the first day of Eid Al Adha last year when the 30-year-old Emirati fisherman lured the four-year-old Pakistani boy with a promise of an Eid gift to the washroom of a mosque in Al Qusais, a suburb of Dubai.

There, he sexually assaulted him after covering the boy’s mouth with his hands. Then he killed the boy by hitting his head on the floor and fled the scene.

The defendant has a criminal record and had been convicted of sodomy, rape and theft earlier.
