A 21-year-old man from the Lohatbaddi village in the Ludhiana district of Punjab, India, was allegedly killed in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) by his Pakistani roommates after a verbal argument.

The victim has been identified as Manjot Singh who had travelled to Dubai in 2023 to work as a labourer at a Pharmaceutical company.

Manjot’s father Dilbagh Singh borrowed Rs 2 lakh from financiers and relatives to send his son abroad to improve the family’s condition.

The incident allegedly occurred on June 21, but the family only learnt about it after the victim stopped answering their calls.
