A suspect in the murder of Bangladeshi businessman Saruare Hossain has been identified as Delomar Gazi who made his first appearance before the Mbabane Magistrate’s Court.

Gazi (28) is said to have appeared before Senior Magistrate Nonhlanhla Dlamini yesterday morning after he was arrested for being suspected of having a hand in the murder of the Bangladeshi businessman on Friday.

The family of the late Asian national businessman, Sawar Hossin who was found dead, lying in a pool of his own blood, with a gashing head wound in his apartment at Park View Heights in Mbabane on March 30, may finally have some closure as the police are making headway in the investigations of his murder. Gazi was apprehended on Friday morning after the police received a tip off from a fellow countryman, after he allegedly purchased a cell phone worth E1 200 with blood stained notes. The blood stains are suspected to be those of Saruare Hossain.

It is said that the police caught Gazi just in the nick of time, as he seemed to have been in the process of fleeing the country.


“Had the police been 20 minutes late they would not have found the suspect as they found him with his bags packed and allegedly looking to go on the run,” said a source. Gazi is facing two charges, the first being that the accused allegedly struck the deceased person with a dumb bell once on the head, inflicting a fatal wound which the victim died of.  A dumb bell is an exercise tool consisting of two wooden or metal balls connected by a short bar serving as a handle, used as a weight for exercising. The other charge faced by the accused is one of robbery, after he is said to have, before committing the murder, coerced the victim to hand over his two cell phones valued at an overall amount of E19 000.

As the only suspect apprehended in connection with the murder of the Bangladeshi business, his appearance before Senior Magistrate Nonhlanhla Dlamini revealed that he is to be remanded back into custody until thursday for the court to set his trial date.
