(Scroll down for video) A man disguised himself as a Muslim woman in order to lure a boy away to his death.

The victim’s father, Dr. Majid Janjua, 38, who lives in the United Arab Emirates, said that he went to the mosque in Abu Dhabi for Asr prayers, which is the third of the five prayers, with his son.

Neighbors said that they saw 11-year-old Azan Majid Janjua, leaving the mosque, but he never made it home.

He was not found until the next day, when air conditioning technicians came to the property for a repair on the roof of the building, where the missing boy lived.

While checking a malfunctioning chiller, the repairman found Azan’s body, which was half-naked.

While reviewing the surveillance videos, police discovered that the suspect was dressed as a Muslim woman. He was wearing a full burqa and face veil, and carried a pocket book.

Major General Maktoum Al Sharifi from the Abu Dhabi Police, said that the suspect “cross-dressed as a woman because he knew that the boy would not go with a man without permission from his parents.”

The man was seen going into the elevator with the boy before he went missing.

Police have since arrested the suspect, who is believed to be a Pakistani immigrant, for the murder, and the detectives said that he confessed to the crime.

The suspect is known to the family as the boy’s father is from Pakistan father and his mother is from Russia.
