Police were initially give a tip-off about the suspects’ crime, and after forming a team of electronic experts, were able to confirm the information.

Police were then able to track the identity and the whereabouts of the suspects, and started following the movement of the Arab men.

After taking the necessary legal procedures, an undercover officer from Ras Al Khaimah Police arranged for a meeting with the suspects while posing as a client.

The suspects were caught red-handed, and the case has been referred to public prosecution.

“The medical pills not only caused abortion in women but also posed a great risk to women’s lives,” said Brig Al Munkis.

He urged members of the public not to purchase medical drugs from unlicensed strangers, especially through social networking sites.
