The High Criminal Court sentenced a Bahraini man to three years behind bars and two women, a GCC and a Bahraini national, BD100 and BD200, respectively, for engaging in a fistfight. Court files say the trio were friends. Circumstances leading to the case occurred when the GCC woman told the other woman that the Bahraini man was always speaking ill of her.
The woman then contacted the man, who is an event organiser and met him in the presence of the GCC national to settle the issue. However, during reconciliation efforts, a disagreement popped resulting in the women throwing punches at each other. The GCC national told the court that the Bahraini woman continued to assault her even after she attempted to leave. The incident resulted in causing 15pc permanent disability to the GCC woman’s nose.
