The court also imposed a fine of Dh20,000 on each accused for driving under the influence of drugs.

Two Arab men, in their late 20s, were each sentenced to seven years in jail by the Ajman Criminal Court for administering an injection with heroin overdose to their friend leading to his death. The accused later dumped the victim’s body in a car, and abandoned it in another emirate.

The court also imposed a fine of Dh20,000 on each accused for driving under the influence of drugs.

After receiving a missing report of the victim, the police swung into action and launched an intensified search. They found the body of the victim in the driver’s seat of a car in a desert area.

The body was transferred to forensic laboratory for autopsy, which showed that the man had died due to an overdose of heroin. The police nabbed the first accused after a massive combing operation. During the police interrogation, the suspect said that he and his friend decided to go to Ajman to visit the victim. The victim asked them to get drugs from a location (in another emirate) sent to him through WhatsApp. After procuring the drugs, they all went to the house of the second accused, who administered the victim an injection of heroin which led to his immediate death, the first accused claimed. They dumped his body in a car and abandoned it in another emirate.

During interrogation at the public prosecution, both accused admitted to the crime after police seized two injections with traces of heroin and morphine drug from the house of the second suspect.

The public prosecution charged the accused for buying heroin and causing the death of their friend due to drug overdose. They were also charged with hiding the body in a desert area.
