It’s the Dubai Police and the long-time loving residents of the city that keep Dubai a safe haven. The crime rate is at an all-time low but even when there is a crime committed, justice is served almost instantly.
In the Naif area of Dubai, 2 Asian men were reportedly carrying two bags containing AED4.25 million in cash of different currencies. A thief decided to snatch one of the bags and make a run for it! He grabbed one of the bags which contained AED2.7 million. The two Asian men shouted for help and a man working at a store nearby intercepted the theft!

As the two Asian men shouted for help, Mr Keshur saw the robber running with the stolen bag toward him, so he bravely tackled him, started wrestling with him, and pinned him to the ground until the police patrols arrived and made the arrest.
Dr Major General Tariq Tahlak said.
The Dubai Police paid Mr Keshur a visit to his workplace to honour him among his colleagues and neighbours.
