By Eman Al Baik

A drunk father was accused of premeditated killing attempt of his 16-year-old son.

 The father stabbed his son once in the chest which was fatal and deep, reaching his chest’s cavity.

The son, SM, could have died should he was not rushed to the hospital in time.

 On April 14, 2015, police received a complaint about a stabbing crime in Al Rashidiya area.

 Police officer, MS, 24, was rushed to the scene to check the crime.

“I saw blood on the floor when I arrived at the house. The father was there and when I asked him what happened, he replied that he had stabbed his son,” testified the officer.

I could smell alcohol in his breath,” said the officer.

The father admitted to consuming 10 cans of beer on that day,” testified the officer.

However, the records did not mention why the father stabbed his son.

 The Dubai Prosecution asked the court to stiffen the penalty against the accused.
