Man sustains head injury in assault

A 25-year-old man was assaulted in Malé around 2:45pm yesterday near the Islamic College in the Henveiru ward of the capital.

According to police, the victim was rushed to the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital for treatment of head injuries and has since been released.

No arrests have yet been made in connection with the assault, police said.

In August, a spate of violent assaults in the capital – which police said was a series of gang reprisals – saw two young men stabbed to death.
