Under-aged girl arrested over alleged involvement in Basheer murder

An under-aged girl is being held in custody over suspicion of involvement in the murder earlier this month of Ahusan Basheer, police have said.

No further details were given regarding the female suspect other than that she is being held in custody over an alleged connection to the murder of Ahusan Basheer, 21, who was stabbed to death in the early hours of March 17 near Alikileygefaanu Magu, one of the main streets of the capital Male’.

Following a week-long manhunt, police arrested Ibrahim Shahum, 20, as the main suspect in the murder.  Shahum had recently been released by the Criminal Court after being kept in detention for six months on suspicion of stabbing a 17 year-old to death on July 30, 2010.

Head of the Maldive police Service’s Serious and Organized Crime Department (SOC) Abdul Nawaz confirmed that Ahusan’s murder case was still unresolved.

‘’We have only one under-aged person in connection to this case and the person is a female,’’ Nawaz said. ‘’We can’t provide further details of the case as it may compromise the investigation.’’

Special operations

Crime-Prevention Committee MeetingNawaz additionally claimed that special operations being conducted by police to curb gang violence in Male’ was working successfully.  He added that the intiative had led to the arrest of 155 people, the transfer of a further 21 suspects to house arrest and another 101 people being searched.  Additionally, 53 houses were checked and five vehicles were impounded.

Despite praising the initiatives, Nawaz appealed to the public to be more careful while carrying cash around the country, requesting those who need to transfer large amounts of money from one place to another to seek police assistance beforehand.

Meanwhile, the recently-formed National Crime Prevention Committee met members of the parliamentary security services committee yesterday to discuss immediate measures that could be taken to combat the rise in organised crime and gang-related violence.

As the required legislation would take longer to complete, the committee has reportedly decided to formulate regulations in collaboration with parliament to empower police to hold suspects in custody for longer periods.

  1. Anyone know when she was arrested? And the name of the girl who was arrested?

  2. since she is underage , the name can't be released. lets not jump to conclusions yet , she might be a material witness , or even an accessory to the offense. I hope she testifies if she is a witness and gets imprisoned to serve her sentence is she is one of the offenders.

  4. Well, this might sound a bit harsh, but we really got to something and that something means the death penalty.

  5. Stuff this so-called "human rights" too. Human rights apply to humans. Murderes are not humans; they are a class underneath even animals!

  6. humans are humans. they dont turn to beasts by themselves. so before killing the beast we need to kill those who are responsible for the beast so no more beasts will be created. and at one point of time only the beasts will remain and a just society will be attained.

THESE PPL , WHEN THEY COMEBACK TO THE SOCIETY AND YOU PPL EXPECT THEM TO BEHAVE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE ? THERE IS STILL NO HOPE FOR A HALFWAY HOUSE AND THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY THINGS HAVE GONE THIS LEVEL. THE POLICE CAN ARREST ALL OF THE YOUTH , , BUT YOU PPL WILL NEVER SOLVE ANYTHING WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE SYSTEM WE HAVE , WHICH HAVE FAILED SO VERY MUCH ,

    I ASK , THE ARCHITECT OF THE HEROIN , VIOLENCE AND ABUSES WAS A MAUMOON , AND EVERY ONE KNOWS THIS !! BUT THE GOVERNMENT FAILS TO BRING JUSTICE TO THE SOCIETY FROM THE TOP , HOW CAN U EXPECT JUSTICE TO RUN AT THE ANY WHERE AT THE SOCIETY.

    TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS , YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM !!

  9. "we need to kill those who are responsible for the beast so no more beasts will be created."

    Now you're talking. I have a solution that's better than yours. Castrate all those people who are either unable or unwilling to look after their offspring. If ANY one their offspring is found guilty of a crime, castrate the buggers!

  11. Only education can solve this problem. We should have course on "Moral Science" and should also involve youth in sports activities. Inter School Competitions on sports, debate etc.

  12. Nothing other than justice can bring about a solution to anything unjust.

    If anyone (people or government) wants justice, I would say @Munady on 9th Apr 2011 6:56 PM is right. Do justice from top to bottom. It is then possible to have some peace. If not, all this is pointless!
