Friday, 31 January 2014 - 6:07pm IST | Agency: IANS

An Indian national, convicted of murdering his sponsor in Saudi Arabia, has been executed, media reported citing the country's interior ministry Friday.

Muhammad Latif was beheaded in the country's capital Riyadh Thursday after he was convicted by a court of killing his sponsor Dhafir Al-Dossari by hitting him with an iron pipe during a dispute and then hiding the body in an abandoned well.

The court had earlier postponed the execution because the sons of the sponsor were minors and waited till they were old enough to agree with the verdict.
