Senior citizen commits suicide

KUWAIT: A Kuwaiti man in his 60s threw himself from a sixth floor apartment in an apparent suicide. Police found a suicide note in the man’s apartment in which he said that he was “depressed for years,” and that he was having difficulties running his businesses due to alleged “demands for bribes” from government employees. A case was filed for further investigations.

Attempted murder
Farwaniya prosecutor charged three citizens with attempted murder after they beat and stabbed another citizen then escaped. A dispute erupted between the victim and the three suspects, so they beat him severely, stabbed him three times in the back and arm then escaped. The victim’s family found him bloodied in front of their home, so he was taken to Farwaniya hospital before being transferred to Razi hospital for further treatment. Detectives are investigating.

Banned from entry
A Saudi national was deported to Bahrain as passport officers at Kuwait International Airport discovered that he was banned from entering Kuwait. The man had arrived from Thailand to Kuwait as a stopover en route to Saudi Arabia, but entered the passports control area at Kuwait airport by mistake. When officers found that he was banned from entering Kuwait due to security reasons, orders were made to deport him, but since flights to Saudi Arabia were not available at the time, he asked to be deported to Bahrain so he could drive home from there, and was granted his wish. — Translated by Kuwait Times from Al-Rai
