A 23-year-old man has been remanded in custody for 15 days for obstructing police duty and biting a police officer on the left hand during a confrontation. The incident occurred while the officers were attempting to restrain the suspect, identified as Ibrahim Nail of Vaavu Atoll Rakeedhoo Island, who failed to comply with their orders during an encounter. It resulted in charges being filed against him.
The court made its decision to remand him after reviewing evidence submitted by the police, including a statement and photo report from the scene. Nail is charged with obstructing police duty and biting a police officer on the left hand. The court cited Nail’s previous arrest for similar offenses and criminal record as reasons for the 15-day remand, which it deemed necessary for the safety and security of the community.
While it is rare for police officers in the Maldives to face physical harm while carrying out their duties, Nail’s actions were deemed serious enough to warrant his arrest. The court’s decision to remand him in custody for 15 days highlights the seriousness of his actions and the importance of ensuring the safety of the community.
