Pinoy on Trial for Attempted Murder of Colleague

According to the victim, he was at his desk in their workplace at Al Muraqqabat when the incident happened in July this year. He was talking to a client on the phone when the defendant arrived and smiled at him before stabbing him three times, Gulf News reported.

The victim recalled that the defendant arrived at 8 pm, looked at him with a smile, then suddenly stabbed him three times — in the neck, shoulder, and back. The defendant tried to stab him a fourth time, but other colleagues managed to restrain him before calling the police.

While the victim was being brought to the hospital, the defendant managed to escape. However, the police were able to track him down and arrested him two days later.

The victim said that he had no idea why the defendant stabbed him, as they didn’t have any problems before. A medical report showed that he could have died from his stab wounds if he hadn’t received medical treatment right away. Still, the motive for the violent attack remains unclear.

The defendant has been charged with attempted murder, though he has denied this in court. The trial has been adjourned until October 20th, when the defendant is set to present his defence. At present, he remains under custody of police authorities.
