Dubai, Apr 6 (UNI) A court in the UAE has jailed an Indian for 15 years and fined him 800 dirham on the charge of murdering his friend.
Court records showed that the Fujairah Police received a report about the body of a 41 year old Indian Shashi V. Police investigations later revealed that he had a quarrel with his friend Balan B.
Balan admitted to have murdered his friend after he fought with him for refusing to pay for a bottle of alcohol he had bought earlier. Having drunk too much they had an argument about the price and began fighting, press reports said.
The case was referred to the court, which sentenced him to 15 years in prison over the charge of premeditated murder. The court also fined him 500 dirham for drinking alcohol and 300 dirham for working with an employer other than his sponsor.
