Death of bedoun due to corona discloses ‘forgery’ of document

Police arrest three drunkards for fighting


KUWAIT CITY, July 11: A strange case has been filed at the Jabriya Police Station by the legal representa­tive of the Ministry of Health, reports Al-Jarida daily.

In his case the representa­tive is demanding the security authoritie­s to look into a case of forgery. According to case papers an unidentifi­ed person (believed to be a bedoun) was admitted to the Mubarak Al-Kabir Hospital when he was suspected of infection with the Corona virus.

At the time of admission he submitted his Civil ID which showed he is a Kuwaiti. Unfortunat­ely, the man died of infection after a few days.

Following the death the dead man’s sister came to claim the body, but here the case took a twist when the authoritie­s discovered she was not a Kuwaiti.

Further investigat­ions revealed, the man had used the Civil ID of a Kuwaiti to get access to the hospital for treatment. The name of the deceased did not match the name on the Civil ID.

Now the owner of the Civil ID has been summoned for interrogat­ion to know how the deceased got hold of his Civil ID.

Drunkards in fight: Three people – a Kuwaiti, a Saudi and a bedoun -- have been arrested by the police for fighting inside an apartment in Salmiya, reports Al-Anba daily.

According to police the three men were drunk. Police have seized from them alcohol. The Kuwaiti and the Saudi sustained minor injuries during the fight, while the bedoun has a fracture in the head.

It is not known why the men were fighting.

Drug addict on roads: Police have taken into custody an unidentifi­ed Kuwaiti for consuming drugs and blocking traffic on a main road Friday in Egaila, reports Al-Anba daily.

The daily added, the arrest came after several motorists complained about the strange behavior of the suspect wearing short pants opposite one of the well-known complexes.

After receiving the report two police patrols were dispatched to the area, the ‘drug addict’ was controlled and taken to the area police station.

Food stores destroyed: Five firefighti­ng engines from Sulaibikha­t, Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Al-Tahrir, Sabhan and Al-Isnad rushed to two warehouses containing foodstuffs, wood, oils and highly flammable substances in Sulaibiya Industrial Area and put out fire, reports Al-Anba daily.

According to a firefighti­ng statement, the total area of the two warehouses is approximat­ely 10,000 square meters, and that much of the area was destroyed by fire.
