A pregnant Indian woman working as a nurse in Oman was found dead in her apartment, according to a media report on Thursday. The woman, identified as Chikku Robert, was found with at least a dozen stab wounds on her body, the Times of Oman reported.

Robert and her husband were from Kerala and were working at Badr Al Samaa hospital in Salalah city, the capital of Dhofar province. They were married four months ago.

“She was found dead in her apartment yesterday. She was supposed to be on duty by 10pm. As she didn’t turn up to duty, her husband went to the apartment only to find her lying dead,” said Manpreet Singh, the honorary Indian consular agent in Salalah.

“Investigation is on, police have sealed the area and the body is kept in Sultan Qaboos Hospital,” he added.

An official from Badr Al Samaa hospital confirmed the death and said they are waiting for updates.

“It’s sad news. We are waiting for updates,” said KO Devassy, the group marketing manager of the hospital.
