KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Ahmad Al-Sadi yesterday adjourned until next Wednesday the case filed against a Bangladeshi taxi driver who was detained for fighting with four Arab expatriates. According to the case file, the expatriates had stopped the taxi driver in Bneid Al-Gar. After they told him where they wanted to go, he said the cost of transporting them to their destination was two dinars.

However, the four refused and told him, “We will pay you one and a half dinars.” The taxi driver refused and drove off. Minutes later, he returned to the location and hit one of them with his car, injuring the victim but the others were able to save themselves. The taxi driver then fled to the Shuwaikh Industrial Area and replaced the windshield of the taxi which broke when the car hit the victim.

The entire incident was captured by a camera installed outside a house in the area, using which the accused was arrested and placed in prison. The victim testified that he and his friends were standing by the road in Bneid Al-Gar when a taxi driven by a Bangladeshi taxi driver stopped in front of them. They discussed the price of the trip, but they did not reach an agreement with him, after which they were told to look for another taxi driver. However, they were surprised when the taxi driver returned after some time, while they were still waiting for another taxi. He stopped in front of them for two minutes, and then charged at them, hitting one of them with his vehicle. The victim fell to the ground, and the taxi driver fled the scene.
