The country manager of Habib Bank was stabbed and robbed in his home yesterday evening by a gang of four masked men.
Mohamed Anjul Jameel suffered injuries to his nose, forehead and right arm but was not seriously hurt, said Police Sergeant Abdul Muhsin.
Jameel was taken to ADK Hospital for treatment following the attack, which occurred around 5:30pm yesterday.
The bank’s Manager for Foreign Exchange Saudhulla Saeed told Minivan News the incident occurred inside Jameel’s house.
”When he went home after work a group of four young men were in front of his apartment covering their faces,” Saeed said. ”[Jameel] did not notice that these guys were there.”
Saeed said as the man opened his apartment the men came up from behind and pushed him inside his room.
”They covered his mouth and started beating him,” Saeed said, ”and then he told the group to take whatever they liked.”
He said the group only took the money from inside Jameel’s wallet.
”They packed a laptop, five watches and some cosmetics but they forgot to take it with them,” he said.
He said Jameel’s face was badly beaten in the attack. He was discharged from ADK Hospital this afternoon.
Saeed noted that Jameel’s five year contract was coming to an end and he would be leaving the country very soon.
