Personnel from the Criminal Investigation Department in cooperation with the Abu Halifa police have arrested a Bangladeshi and his Filipino girlfriend for killing their 4-month-old son and burying him on an open ground in Fahaheel, reports a local daily.
The arrest came after police were tipped off by an unidentified person and during interrogation the couple admitted to committing the crime and guided police to the area where they had buried the toddler. According to security sources the Filipina was sheltered by the Bangladeshi after she ran away from her sponsor’s home three years ago and on whom there is an ‘absconding’ report filed by the sponsor.
The Bangladeshi admitted that he strangled the baby, wrapped it in a piece of cloth, and sprayed perfume before burying him. The mother said she begged her lover not to kill the baby.
