Six Indians held in Oman for compatriot’s death get bail

DUBAI, June 4: Six Indians, who were arrested in connection with a compatriot’s death in Oman, have been granted bail after over a month in detention.
The accused were arrested after an Indian man was found in a pool of blood in his room at Salalah area of Iman on April 14, a media report said.
He was rushed to a hospital in Salalah where he later died. A knife was recovered besides the victim’s body.
The victim was working as a bread-maker in a restaurant and was working in Oman for 30 years.
The Royal Oman Police had detained eight persons, including four colleagues and the victim’s son-in-law, identified as Mustafa, for questioning within hours after the murder.
Bail was granted to the six accused after they handed over their passports and other papers as guarantee.
“As the court will remain closed for the Khareef festival, the bail was granted now,” a social worker who was providing help to the accused told the newspaper. (PTI)
