Hoax calls

Police received a number of calls from a girl reporting a suicide and murder taking place in Farwaniya. Police and detectives responded, but could not locate the address given to them. When they called the phone number that the emergency calls came from, it was out of service. Detectives called the same number through WhatsApp, and this time a Syrian man in his sixties answered and told them he did not report any crime. Detectives went to his home and eventually discovered that his 16-year-old daughter used her mother's phone and made the emergency calls. The girl said she made the calls to challenge her family, who had denied her request to travel back home. Her father told police that she suffered mental issues, so the case was closed after police took an undertaking from the father to prevent his daughter from repeating her act. - Translated from the Arabic press
