A 28-year-old Indian has been arrested after a man died in a drunken brawl at a labour camp, police have said.

The man was killed in a five-man fight at the camp in Muhaisnah on Friday, said Col Mohammed Nasser of Dubai Police.

The men were under the influence of alcohol. The reason for the fight is not known.

Police arrested four of the suspects at the camp, but the main suspect, who is believed to have killed the victim, fled. "The perpetrator had run away from the scene but we were able to arrest him within 48 hours," Col Nasser said.
