Drug possession

Farwaniya detectives arrested a citizen wanted for a five-year prison term and a bedoon with two heroin packs, said security sources, noting that the suspects were arrested by a police patrol while they were diving in an unsteady course.

Policemen assaulted

In a defiant act against law-enforcement, 11 suspects assaulted a police force dispatched to arrest a wanted bedoon robber and managed to free the main suspect, said security sources. Case papers indicate that detectives rushed to the wanted suspect's house to arrest him and on their way out, they were attacked by 11 of the suspect's acquaintances with sticks and knives. The suspects also held two officers inside a room in the house to force them to release the main suspect, and fled the scene before backup arrived. A search is on for the 12 suspects, while the injured policemen were rushed to hospital for treatment. - Al-Rai
