A group of two men have attacked a police officer and his two brothers on the island of Gemanafushi in Gaafu Alifu Atoll.
According to police, last night at about 7:00pm two men attacked the police officer after he tried to stop the motorbike they were riding, allegedly because he was riding too fast and the islanders had complained about it.
Police said the two men assaulted the police officer and fled, and an hour later stabbed the officer’s younger brother in the head and another of his brothers in the stomach.
The victim stabbed in the head was 19 years-old and the other was 24 years-old, according to police.
Police said three persons have been arrested in connection with the case.
Gemanafushi Island Council President Asim Mohamed told Minivan News that the police officer tried to stop two persons that were speeding on a motorbike.
‘’They attacked the police officer when he stopped them and islanders gathered to the area and controlled the fight,’’ Asim said. ‘’Later the police officer’s brothers went to confront the persons that attacked the police officer, that’s when they were injured.’’
He said he did not know whether the attack on police officer was politically motivated.
‘’But they both are Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) supporters,’’ he claimed.
Asim said the victim stabbed in the stomach was in a serious condition and that his appendix had to be removed.
There has been a growing animosity between security forces and MDP supporters, following the role of the police in the ousting of former President Mohamed Nasheed on February 7. Tensions escalated last week after a raid on the MDP protest camp near the tsunami monument memorial, in which several MDP supporters were injured. One supporter was taken to hospital after he was discovered injured amid the rocks that make up Male’s eastern sea wall.
Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam claimed the attack on Gemanafushi occurred due to “continued support and encouragement from political figures to attack police.”
Police are investigating the incident.

Is this A Dirty Game played by the POLICE to tarnish the MDP supporter image. A SET UP? POSSIBLY. However Violence should not be advocated; BUT THE IMPOSTER REGIME AND ITS ROUGE POLICE ARE INSTIGATING VIOLENCE< AND TARGETING PEOPLE. ONE QUESTION; THE KNIFE OR THE INSTRUMENT USED; WHOSE WAS IT.? THERE LIES THE CLUE!.... WHO BROUGHT THE KNIFE INTO THE SCENE? THE POLICEMAN'S BROTHER; ISN'T IT? AND WHY? WAS IT SELF HARM OF THE FAMILY ACT? FALSIFYING EVIDENCE; AND SOME MOTOR-BIKE FANATIC IS TARGETED? THESE ROUGE POLICE, WHO ARE PROBABLY PAID TO CARRY OUT THESE VILE ATTACKS ON THEMSELVES IN ORDER TO PUT THE BLAME ON OTHERS SHOULD BE IMPRISONED!....THE KNIFE MUST HAVE COME FROM THE NEIGHBOURHOOD!.... AND NOT FROM THE MDP SUPPORTERS WHO WERE ON MOTOR-BIKE. THE VICIOUS MINDS OF HATE HAS NO COMMON SENSE!.... WHO YOU TRYING TO FOOL, HEY! I AM A POLICE OFFICER TOO. BUT NOT FROM THERE. THE POLICE ARE MEANT TO SAFEGUARD PEOPLE,; NOT TO HURT THEM!....
SHYAM , YOU ARE A CANIVING GOOSE!...
BROTHER ATTACKED BROTHER SO HAT HE COULD PUT THE BLAME ON A MOTOR-BIKER? IT SEEMS THAT WAY. THAT IS WHAT THEY CALL COMMON-SENSE.HOW COULD YOU, BROTHER?
This must surely be an act of an MDP thug. Only they do these violent murderous acts. MDP is a violent terrorist party which needs to be eliminated and extincted from this country.
Former president Nasheed advocated violence and civil unrest and also openly called to distrup enforcing officers. Nasheed & MDP must take full responsibilty for advocation violence in the country.Its time to issue an arrest Nasheed and shut him for sometime.
He is suffering from Antisocial personality disorder
Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. This behavior is often criminal.
A person with antisocial personality disorder may:
Be able to act witty and charming
Be good at flattery and manipulating other people’s emotions
Break the law repeatedly
Disregard the safety of self and others
Have problems with substance abuse
Lie, steal, and fight often
Not show guilt or remorse
Often be angry or arrogant
I strongly believe and agree with your words.... MDP supporters are well disciplined, I believe this is a crime organised by Yameen and his allies operating in diffrent parts of the country.... In Addu City too this brother of Older man Maumoon is operating widely....He provide the gangs with drugs and money to motivate them do these dirty tasks and the Mayor is helpless as rogue police sided with the PPM and DRP goons.
Anarchists. We live in the age of LTE mobile networks, and dragons.
I do not think this is anybody's act!
