Kaashidhoo MP Abdulla Jabir’s younger brother Ali Asrar and an additional suspect has been arrested for assaulting a man inside the politician’s guesthouse in AA. Mathiveri. 

The assault took place at Casa Mia Maldives on Thursday. 

The victim was treated at the local health center. An official from the health center told Sun that the victim had swelling in three places on his face, and had minor bleeding – which the victim said happened when the assailants pulled forcefully at his beard. 

The official said the victim did not sustain serious injuries in the incident. 

A police spokesperson told Sun that two suspects have been arrested in connection to the case – a 37-year-old male and a 31-year-old male. 

Meanwhile, police are also investigating a fire which broke out inside Casa Mia Maldives’ engine room on early Saturday – which Jabir’s son believes to have been deliberately set.
