Linson Thomas, the husband of murdered Indian nurse Chikku Robert, has been released by the Oman government.
Linson was in custody for 119 days in connection with Chikku’s murder.
Chikku Robert, a nurse from the south Indian state of Kerala working with Badr Al Samaa hospital in Salalah, was found dead in her apartment with multiple stab injuries on her body, late at night on April 20.
She was supposed to be on duty by 10pm on that day, but as she did not turn up for work, her husband Linson Thomas, who works in the same hospital, went to their apartment to look for her, where he found her dead body.
While speaking to a Malayalam news channel, Linson said that he was treated fairly by the Oman Police and expressed hope that they would be able to catch the real culprit soon.
Earlier few others, including the couple’s neighbours, were also taken in to custody for interrogation.
Chikku and Linson had married in October 2015 and she was five months pregnant at the time of death.
