SULAIMANI – Sulaimani General Asayish Directorate said on Saturday (June 12) that the security forces were able to arrest the “perpetrator” who killed a Kurdish businessman in a neighborhood in Sulaimani early on Friday.

On Friday, the body of employer Osman Mohammed was found dead  in his under-construction house in Rizgari neighborhood around 3:30 am, with scars of beatings on his body likely by a shovel after he had visited the building. 

The killer also stole Mohammed’s Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle before fleeing the scene. 

The “perpetrator”, 21, was apprehended in accordance with article 406 of the Iraqi Penal Code in coordination with the Iraqi security forces in Saladin in less than 24 hours and the seized vehicle was also recovered, the Asayish directorate said in a statement. 

“The criminal had come, settled in Sulaimani for months and continuously worked for the killed man,” read the statement, noting the accused man escaped to Tikrit after murdering the man.
