With the motive to resolve the issue, the victim visited his business partner’s office. As he reached there, all of the accused closed him and threatened him to pay a sum amount of Dh100,000.

According to the reports, the victim immediately called one of his friends, asking him to get the money. The investigation report cites that the money was immediately paid to the accuses. 

The report further reveals that the accused asked the victim to pay the money via writing cheques in the name of their firm and to the bearer. The culprits then told the victim to go along with them to the person who marketed them the goods.

On the way, the victim tried reporting about the incident to the police authorities, but the accused halted the vehicle in a sandy area and beat him. 

The culprits then called the victim’s wife and asked her to pay the amount of Dh220,000 if she wanted her husband to be alive, telling the lady that her husband had been kidnapped by them. After getting the news, the brother-in-law of the victim held negotiation talks with the culprits, which resulted in the agreement of paying the ransom amount in two cheques. 

Though the Court of Appeal denied the charges, being assured about shreds of evidence, it decided to support the verdict by the Criminal Court in Dubai.
