Qatar police arrests a man suspected of two murders in Al Wakrah.

Two Sudanese siblings were reportedly murdered in their workplace in Qatar after being stabbed on Monday by a former employee in what appeared to be a premeditated robbery.

Kamal and Sami Ali Albasher were murdered by a Pakistani national in Doha who had stabbed them and fled the country immediately, according to the Sudanese media that reported the incident on Tuesday. 

Relatives of the victims told the media that Kamal, the older sibling, went to check on Sami in his office located in Al Wakrah near Abdul Rahman bin Jassim preparatory School after he received a call from Sami’s wife concerned as her husband didn’t return to lunch like he usually does. Soon after Kamal reaches the office, he failed to pick up his phone. Which led his wife to call the owner of the company who proceeded to the office to find it completely locked with Sami’s car parked in front of it. The owner then called the police who had to break open the door, to find the two brothers dead “soaked in their own blood” 

Their relatives explained that the salaries of all the employees at the firm were with Sami as he had to disburse them.

CCTV footage revealed that the identity of the killer, a Pakistani national who had previously worked at the company before he was fired. He is believed to have closely monitored the salary payment process, tracking its timings, and when the cash would be at the office and in the hands of his victim. The murderer stole all the money before fleeing the scene. 

He headed to the airport shortly after committing the crime and boarded a plane to Pakistan but was arrested “hours later” by Pakistani security forces acting on a warrant Qatari authorities had issued in the immediate aftermath of the crime. He is now in Doha where he is facing criminal charges.

The bodies of the brothers are expected to be buried on Wednesday or Thursday.
