Man sues boss for attack over passport row

A MAN who was allegedly stabbed by one of his bosses after he tried to take back his passport has filed a case in court.

Radhakrishnan Thankappan Nair reportedly suffered injuries to his left hand and shoulder and ended up in the Intensive Care Unit at Salmaniya Medical Complex.

He is now recovering at home.

It is claimed a row broke out when the Indian went to collect his passport from his employer on April 28 after he decided to quit when his salary was allegedly cut.

But the 35-year-old salesman working in a food company was allegedly told he would only be given it on the condition he signed a blank document.

After he was forced to sign the paper, the victim claims his Indian manager refused to hand him the passport and salary as agreed.

It is claimed as he attempted to grab the items, his manager attacked him with a knife.

The victim, from the Indian state of Kerala, yesterday filed a case at the Urgent Matters Labour Court through lawyer Bushra Mayoof. Meanwhile, a company representative told the judge Mr Nair had received his passport. The trial was adjourned to July 10.
