Pakistani man kills Indian doctor in UAE

In a gruesome incident, a Pakistani man armed with a big knife stormed a private hospital in Abu Dhabi and killed an Indian urologist after the death of his relative at the hospital, a media report today said.

Sources at Al Ahli Hospital in the capital said the man went straight into the urology clinic and stabbed the 58-year-old doctor before forcing him on his knees and slitting his throat.

Other doctors and staff members rushed into the clinic but it was too late.

"He stormed into the clinic although nurses tried to prevent him…he then attacked the doctor and slain him like a sheep...the man then waited at the hospital until the police came and arrested him," a source was quoted as saying by Emirates 24/7.

Dr Rajan Daniel, who is from Trivandrum in Kerala, had been working in the hospital since 2007. His wife Geeta George lives with him in the UAE. The doctor is also survived by his only daughter Junu.

Another source said the man appeared furious. "He blamed the Indian doctor for his relative's death and attacked him without giving him a chance to defend himself".
