How the murder was planned
The maids, who had been working with the family for three years, said their room was next to the victim's. Later, the Indonesian maid claimed she had been in a relationship with an Afghani driver for two years.
One day, M.M.R. saw her in the Afghani man's company and started abusing her, threatening to inform their sponsor about her relationship. He also started taking advantage of her, began touching her after watching porn movies in his room and coercing her into having sex with him.
The two maids then hatched plans to murder the driver. They decided that the Indonesian maid would have sex with M.M.R. first and then drug him, so that they could carry out the murder fast. On the day of the crime, a Friday, taking advantage of the fact that the family was out, the Indonesian maid went to the driver's room, watched a movie, had sex with him and then drugged him.
She called the Filipino maid after M.M.R. had fallen asleep. The women then brought out a cord they had hidden under his bed earlier and strangled him. Once they made sure that the man was dead, they cleaned up the room and left.
They pretended as if everything was normal and the next day, took breakfast to his room as usual. Once there, one of the maids shouted that the man was not waking up and informed the sponsor. The sponsor went to his room and on seeing the body, called the police.
On interrogation, the two women said they chose the cord since it would not leave any traces', reports Khaleej Times.
