KUWAIT: The body of a 39-year-old Su­danese man was sent to the coroner after he ar­rived dead at Wafra poly­clinic, with beat­ing marks on his head. The body was ex­am­ined by foren­sic ex­perts be­fore be­ing handed to the coroner. De­tec­tives de­tained the vic­tim’s spon­sor and his brother for ques­tion­ing, as the case is con­sid­ered a homi­cide.

Smug­gling foiled

Nuwaiseeb cus­toms of­fi­cers foiled an at­tempt to smug­gle cig­a­rettes to a GCC coun­try from Kuwait. E-me­dia com­mit­tee mem­ber and as­sis­tant su­per­vi­sor of Nuwaiseeb bor­der post Bi­lal Al-Khamees said in­spec­tors no­ticed a man who was ner­vous while wait­ing at the car in­spec­tion zone, so the ve­hi­cle was searched and 70 card­board boxes of cig­a­rettes were found. The boxes were con­fis­cated.

Sub­si­dized food

A few days after Salmi cus­toms of­fi­cers foiled an at­tempt to smug­gle a large quan­tity of medicine and food sup­plies in a truck head­ing to Egypt, the same of­fi­cers foiled two more at­tempts to smug­gle sub­si­dized food sup­plies in­clud­ing milk, rice, oil and tomato paste, along with 90 mo­bile phones. Salmi cus­toms of­fi­cer Mater Al-Saeedi said trucks are be­ing searched thor­oughly to pre­vent smug­gling of food sup­plies, cig­a­rettes etc, and of­fi­cers were able to dis­cover the goods in two trucks head­ing to the same Arab coun­try. The sup­plies were con­fis­cated and sent to con­cerned au­thor­i­ties.

Sus­pects re­leased

A judge or­dered the re­lease of 11 young men re­lated to a groom on a KD 500 bail fol­low­ing a fight with a reck­less youth who ex­pressed his joy by per­form­ing stunts with his car and stop­ping the groom’s mo­tor­cade in the mid­dle of the street. Rel­a­tives and friends did not like this act and at­tacked him. The young men’s lawyer de­manded their re­lease as the in­ci­dent dis­mayed the groom and his bride, adding that what took place was merely a fight with a per­son un­known to them.

Drug pos­ses­sion

A cit­i­zen ob­structed traf­fic in front of Taima po­lice sta­tion, and when po­lice­men showed up, he handed them a white roll con­tain­ing drugs in­stead of his ID. Po­lice­men no­ticed a car in the mid­dle of the street and traf­fic be­ing ob­structed. When they ap­proached the driver, he was co­her­ent with red­dened eyes. He handed them the drugs and boarded the po­lice car will­ingly. The sus­pect was found wanted on a fi­nan­cial case, and was sent to the Drugs Con­trol Gen­eral Depart­ment for fur­ther le­gal ac­tion. Sep­a­rately two Asian na­tion­als were ar­rested with 42 bags of heroin in Salmiya.
