In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, a 4-year-old child was rushed to Adan Hos­pi­tal af­ter he was ran over by an un­known driver in front of his fam­ily’s house in the Ab­dul­lah Port area.

The driver was re­port­edly climb­ing a hill when his sports-util­ity-ve­hi­cle (SUV) be­came trapped be­tween boul­ders. Ac­cord­ing to a se­cu­rity source, the area has be­come pop­u­lar among driv­ers, par­tic­u­lar SUV own­ers who take rock climb­ing as a form of en­ter­tain­ment, yet risk­ing their and peo­ple’s safety in the process.

A se­cu­rity source said a com­pany had com­plained that KD 8,000 were stolen, so Abu Hu­laifa de­tec­tives were asked to han­dle the case. Us­ing GPS to de­tect cell phone sig­nals in the area, po­lice iden­ti­fied and ar­rested an Asian na­tional who lives in the same area, and he con­fessed that he along with three oth­ers formed a gang to steal ca­bles. He added that they stole from at least eight sites, in­clud­ing the lat­est re­ported case.

Fire broke out A fire broke out in a hall that hosted a so­cial gath­er­ing for women, and two of them suf­fered smoke in­hala­tion. They were taken to Jahra Hos­pi­tal, and their con­di­tions were de­scribed as stable. The fire had started in the buf­fet area, and fire­fight­ers’ prompt in­ter­ven­tion helped limit its spread.
