Atif Popere, had killed Bushra, his 24 -year-old wife in March 2013. He and his accomplice were convicted the same year. After the murder, Popere had fled to India but was forced to eventually head back to UAE and surrender.
Popere’s plea to commute death sentence to life imprisonment was rejected in October. According to the laws of UAE, his death sentence can now be commuted only if the family of his victim pardons him.
“I want my son-in-law’s punishment to be executed as soon as possible. I will not forgive him because he killed my daughter.” said Bushra’s mother Usha Dhananjayan, who is locked in a custody battle for her grand-daughter with Popere’s family.
The motive for the murder is still not clear. Dr Abraham Mathai, the former Vice-Chairman of Maharashtra Minorities Commission said Popere was apparently having an affair and when Bushra questioned him, he killed her.
