Booze traders attack informer colleague
Two Indian workers, who attacked a colleague in revenge for informing the security about their alcohol business in their accommodation, were sentenced to three months in prison.
The Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance also ordered ML, 24, cleaner, and JB, 54, worker, to be deported after serving their jail term.
According to the records, the two accused attacked a Bangladeshi co-worker with steel bars near the accommodation before he was rescued by a pedestrian. The victim sustained two per cent permanent disability.
AS had learnt that some of the accommodation’s residents were trading in alcohol. He informed the accommodation’s security and police came and arrested some workers including ML.
ML was detained for one day and then bailed out.
On February 2 at around 5.30am, AS, 32, came out from the accommodation, heading to work.
“ML and two men other stopped me and started hitting me by a piece of steel. They continued hitting me until a Pakistani passed by. They ran away and the pedestrian called the police and I was rushed to hospital for treatment,” said AS.
The victim sustained a permanent disability in the movement of one of his fingers.
Police arrested ML and JB and the victim recognised them when shown to him via identification parade.
