A security operative affiliated to the General Investigation Department shot his brother by mistake in a quarrel with a third person in Jahra area, reports Al-Rai daily. Details of the story indicate the security operative had a quarrel with a citizen, and the victim (officer’s brother) came up to support him when the quarrel became violent. The citizen fled the scene when the officer drew his gun and fired in the air. The stray bullet hit the brother by accident, and he rushed him to Jahra Hospital in critical condition. A source said the victim underwent emergency surgery before he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit.
