A Sudani national accused of murdering an Indian national has been ordered by the High Criminal Court to be mentally evaluated. The accused had told judges that he killed a drunken Indian national because “he loves Bahrain and hates seeing drunk people walking on public roads”.
Shockingly, the 41-year-old man carried out an ‘Islamic State killing’, where he tortured his victim to death while recording the murder using a camera, according to court files. The Sudani national murdered the victim after encountering him on a public road at dawn. He also sodomized him while he was dying, according to medical reports. The report stated that the Indian man was strangled to death after he was beaten up.
The Sudani national said he did everything out of his love for Bahrain and refusal to see drunk men walking publicly. The defendant came to Bahrain in search of a job and he is a holder of a medical engineering certificate. “I came to Bahrain four months ago, looking for a job. My sister works as a doctor at a hospital here. Her employers sponsored me, but I couldn’t find a job,” the defendant said in his statement yesterday before the High Criminal Court.
“I didn’t have any relationship with the victim. I saw him on the day of the incident at dawn and he was drunk. I was talking with my Bahraini friends on the road and I stopped him. “I asked him about his religion and because I love Bahrain and I don’t like to see drunk people walking in public. I ordered him to show me his ID. But he ran away,” he added.
