Police, medical staff assaulted

KUWAIT: A Kuwaiti and a Saudi were arrested at Adan Hospital for assaulting a receptionist, two policemen stationed at the hospital, an Egyptian doctor and a patient while under the effect of drugs, said security sources. Case papers indicate that the assailants started assaulting the receptionist without any provocation, and when the two policemen tried to stop them, they also assaulted and insulted them, before they barged into the doctor’s office and beat him.

“You will treat us whether you like it or not!” they told the doctor. The assailants also assaulted and insulted another patient who tried to calm them down and stop them. A backup force was dispatched to the hospital that managed to detain the suspects. A case was filed and the suspects were referred to relevant authorities pending legal action against them.

Smuggling foiled
Air cargo custom teams foiled an attempt to smuggle 23 gm of marijuana via three parcels arriving from Switzerland and Britain, and arrested the recipient. Customs sources said all three parcels were addressed to the same recipient, and after examining them, 8 gm of marijuana were found in the one package arriving from Switzerland, while 11 gm and 4 gm were found in parcels arriving from Britain. “Standard procedures were taken to coordinate with customs and drug control detectives to arrest the suspect,” the sources said.

Vehicles destroyed
Firemen are currently investigating a fire that destroyed seven vehicles parked outside a building in Farwaniya, said security sources, noting that on receiving reports about the fire, firemen rushed to the scene and managed to control the fire without any casualties. Further investigations are still ongoing. – Translated by Kuwait Times from Al-Rai
