Three Iranians who had allegedly murdered an Indian national last month have been arrested by Dubai police.

However, a fourth accused in the murder of Indian watchman Arogya Palan, 32, has fled to Iran.

The four had broken into the warehouse of Ascon Construction Company with the intention to steal surveyor machines.

However, the watchman saw them and started shouting. The four then tied Palan with ropes and held him by the neck, killing him on the spot, Khaleej Times reported on Wednesday.

The culprits said they had come to the UAE on a visit visa in order to steal surveyor machines and they had no intention to kill the watchman.

Palan, who hails from Tamil Nadu, had come to the UAE six years ago.
