A year ago, the post office officials of the First District in Sheikh Zayed City brought in a technician to carry out maintenance work. It was the first time that Muhammad set foot in the office before that young man returned to carry out a satanic scheme during the day in Ramadan.
A legal emergence followed several times during which the twenty-year-old visited the post office between receiving a cash transfer at one time and sending one at another. None of the office workers knew what was going on in Mohamed’s mind.
At the end of last April, about 15 minutes before the sunset call to prayer, the upscale neighborhood was on a date with an armed robbery incident that has become the talk of the hour.

Discussing the post office workers, the detectives discovered they had made a catastrophic mistake that caused the accident. It was found that, after the end of the official working hours, they began making an inventory of funds without closing the external iron door, appointing a guard, or using the police.
