An Egyptian man who was beheaded in Saudi Arabia this week had raped a nine-year-old Afghan girl since he kidnapped her when she was six years old and was torturing her to force her to get pregnant quickly.
The man, who was executed along with his sister for helping him, had also caused the death of his two sons because of mistreatment and negligence. He stuffed their bodies in a bag and left it on the rooftop before throwing it away.
The victim, identified as Radia, said she had been locked up in a small room for nearly three years, during which Mohammed bin Nafei raped and tortured her.
“He was always beating me up and kicking me….he wanted me to get pregnant quickly saying he owns me…he used to have a wash once a week only with water as he was saying that soap is haram (prohibited in Islam),” the girl told Saudi newspapers after she was reunited with her family.
Radia was helping her mother in her little clothes shop in the western Saudi town of Makkah when Mohammed’s sister, Jamalat, came in.
After buying some stuff, Jamalat pretended that she did not have enough money and asked the woman to send her daughter with her so she would give her the rest of the money. Radia went with Jamalat, who later phoned her brother.
Mohammed, who has two wives, then asked Radia to come into his house to get the money. Trusting him and his sister, she went in and told them she was in a hurry to go back to her mother. Instead of giving her money, they locked her up in a small room, where her three-year ordeal started.
“He never cared for his sons and this caused the death of two…he put them in bag and left it on the roof of his house…when the time came to leave Saudi Arabia, he just threw the bag away,” Radia said.
“He was very cruel to me…his sister also tortured me but his two wives-an Egyptian and a Nigerian, treated me nicely….while I was there, Jamalat told me many times not to think about my family on the grounds they fled to Afghanistan after my mother killed a Municipality inspector…she told me that I could be beheaded if I was captured by the police.”
Radia said police finally seized Mohammed and his sister after he planned to travel back to Egypt on forged documents, adding that he also forged a passport for her in the name of Dua Ibrahim.
Saudi newspapers said Radia’s family had called many times for severely punishing those behind their daughter’s disappearance before she was freed.
