KUWAIT: A Kuwaiti man was arrested at Souq Sharq for assaulting two others with an edged steel weapon, said the interior ministry’s relations and security media department, noting that the suspect had acted strangely. The department added that along with others – who are still at large and a search is on to arrest them – the suspect had an argument with the two victims that developed into a fight, in which he assaulted them with the blade, injuring them both. On searching the suspect’s vehicle, detectives found liquor in it, and a case was filed pending arresting the runaway accomplices seen on a video posted on social media.
A Kuwaiti was injured after he lost control over his vehicle and it turned over on King Faisal highway, said security sources, noting that Farwaniya firemen rushed to the scene and managed to release the driver from the wreckage and handed him over to paramedics for treatment.
Companies commit violations
Kuwait Municipality’s Public Relations Department said Ahmadi municipal inspectors filed three citations against three companies for unlawful use of government property and the expiry of their storage licenses. In this regard, Ahmadi municipal safety department manager Al-Humaidi Al-Mutairi said an inspection tour in the southern areas resulted in fining the three companies a total of KD 302,066 for unlawful utilization of the total area of 17,000 sq m of government property as offices and storage areas with expired licenses.
