Man who beat po­lice­man has sen­tence re­duced

Gulf News - - Nation -

A

worker who as­saulted a po­lice of­fi­cer won his ap­peal and had his six-month prison sen­tence re­duced to three.

The 26-year-old Bangladeshi was drunk when he was taken into cus­tody in Dubai Me­dia City in March. Dur­ing ques­tion­ing at the po­lice sta­tion, he re­moved his liquor­soaked T-shirt and hurled it at the of­fi­cer. He then punched the po­lice­man in the face and also kicked him in the stom­ach. The Dubai Court of First In­stance found him guilty of as­sault two months later, fol­low­ing which he ap­pealed. He will be de­ported upon com­ple­tion of his sen­tence.
