A Malayali nurse from Angamaly was found dead in her apartment in Salalah on Wednesday night.
According to a report by Manorama, Chikku Robert (25) was stabbed to death, while she was resisting a robbery attempt.
Chikku got married to Linson, a Changanassery native, seven months back. Both of them were working at the Badr Al Samaa hospital in Salalah for the past two years.
At the time of death, Chikku was five months pregnant.
Her body was found in a pool of blood by her husband, who had gone to check on her, as she had not reported to the hospital for her night duty.
A Pakistani national, who lives next door, is said to have been detained in connection with the murder.
