Chinese men kidnap investor in Dubai, extort Dh2 million from him

The victim, a 38-year-old investor, said the incident took place around 6.15pm while he was in the International City to drop a delivery from his restaurant to a customer. “As I was about to get inside my car, I felt someone covering my head with a piece of cloth and others pulling me inside a car which was parked near my car,” he told the prosecutor.

The victim could not see where he was taken. But he told the police that his abductors drove for about half an hour. Later, when they uncovered his eyes, he was asked to contact his wife and tell her to wire Dh2 million to a bank account in China.
