Egypt’s Public Prosecution said in a statement that it received testimony from 20 witnesses, including Naira Ashraf’s parents and sister, who confirmed Adel’s relentless harassment of the victim. This is because their relationship didn’t work out and Ashraf turned down his marriage proposal.
According to Egypt Independent, Ashraf’s family convened usual sessions two months ago and reported the suspect to authorities, pleading with Adel not to kill them.
“Thirteen witnesses, students and staff of the university and its surroundings, also testified that they saw the accused conduct the crime while they were in the area of the occurrence.”
“The suspect was examined by the Public Prosecution about the accusations levied against him, and he confessed to having committed the crime of premeditated murder of the victim owing to their disputes and her refusal to him.” According to the Public Prosecution.
Adel allegedly detailed his plans for committing and carrying out the crime to the Public Prosecution. He also stated that he was determined to marry Ashraf, but she refused and blocked him on social media.
