Escaped convict dies while resisting arrest

ManamaAn escapee from the prison died yesterday in the Capital Governorate while attempting to thwart arrest.

Abdulla Al Ajouz, 22, succumbed to the wounds he suffered when he fell-down in Nuwaidrat.

The man had escaped the Dry Dock Detention Centre last year along with 16 other convicts.

Interior Ministry confirmed the incident yesterday, clarifying that “he fell while attempting to escape arrest and died in the hospital”.

“He is sentenced to life for terror related cases that include murder, attempted murder and manufacturing of explosives,” Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science General Director Colonel Abddulaziz Mayoof Al Rumaihi stated.

Colonel Al Rumaihi explained that the incident occurred during two arrest operations in Nuwaidrat that resulted in the arrest of two wanted criminals.

“Ahmed Habib, 20, and Ahmed Mohammed, 27, who are involved in an assault case that injured three policemen and sheltering the escaped convict Al Ajouz, were arrested in the operation,” he added.
