Two Indians were sentenced to life imprisonment by a court in Dubai for the molestation and murder of a compatriot worker.

The Dubai Court of First Instance handed down life terms to 37-year-old MB and 40-year-old AK for molesting and murder of the victim identified as SL.

The prosecution charged MB and AK with premeditatedly strangling and beating the victim to death in a sandy area.

They were also charged with assaulting the victim with a tool and smothering him with their hands until he died, Gulf News said.

"One of the companies reported that a worker living three kilometres from the murder site was absent. Initial probe revealed that the DNA lifted from the absent worker's belongings matched the DNA which was lifted from the deceased man."

As per the verdict the Indian men will have to spend 25 years in jail.
