The Dubai Criminal Court on Sunday heard a case in which two Asians were accused of exchanging assault with one of them attempting to kill the other with a knife.
According to the official records and their confessions, the defendants were drinking alcoholic beverages between midday and 5pm but had an altercation that led the second defendant to insult the first using indecent words. The first defendant responded using the same indecent words, causing the second to be furious and to deal a punch to him. Although they stopped quarrelling, the first defendant was not satisfied and decided to take revenge. He brought a big knife and stabbed the second defendant several times in the belly, which could have killed him without medical interruption.
