The public prosecution referred a Gulf university student to the courts of law on charges of assaulting a civil servant while on duty, using violence and intentionally hitting his 4W vehicle before running away.

According to the investigations, the victim, a policeman, said he was a member of a team formed to investigate a car theft. The perpetrator was identified and found to be staying in a hotel in Dubai.

The victim went to the perpetrator who happened to be in his vehicle. As soon as the victim showed him his military ID, the perpetrator moved fast, hitting the policeman’s vehicle and causing injuries to the policeman as a result of which he had to stop work for 20 days. The court ordered that the defendant continue to be remanded in custody.
