KUWAIT: An Egyptian woman killed her husband in Khaitan and fled the country, leaving her 8-month-old daughter with one of her neighbors, said security sources. Case papers indicate that the neighbor, an Egyptian woman, reported that the woman had left her baby with her claiming she had to go somewhere, but eight hours later, the mother texted her that she was in Egypt and that some other woman would pick the baby up the same or the following day. “You will know why I left, take care of the girl,” the message said.
Police were called, who rushed to the woman’s house, where they found a foul odor emanating from the apartment. Breaking into the house, detectives found the husband’s body with a deep skull wound and blood all over the place. Initial investigations showed that the wife held a dependent visa sponsored by her husband, that she had three children and that two of them had already left the country three days earlier, but she had to leave her baby with the neighbors because the infant had no passport. The baby was handed to the Egyptian embassy. A case was filed and further investigations are in progress pending contacting Interpol and other relevant authorities.
