Court seeks medical report from injured man seeking compensation.

Sharjah The Sharjah Appeal court has sought a medical report to determine the degree of disability of Mushtaq Ahmad, a man who sought compensation for his injuries inflicted during a gang fight over bootlegging in Al Sajja area in 2009.

A final decision in the case is expected on April 22 when the court gets the medical report.

Mushtaq Ahmad filed a case against 17 Indian men for inflicting injuries to his leg in the bootlegging gang fight and sought a compensation of Dh1.5 million.

On February 8, Sharjah Appeal Court had sentenced the 17 Indian men to six months in prison for consuming and selling alcohol. Earlier, the 17 men were spared of death penalty after being convicted of murdering a man last year in the bootlegging gang fight case.

The Preside Judge Mohammad Saeed Al Ganwi postponed the case in order to give time for presenting medical tests as an evidence to obtain the compensation.

Al Ganwi ordered Mushtaq to bear the cost of Dh2,000 for medical test and must deposit the amount with the court by March 4.

However, the defence lawyer said Mushtaq was demanding an unrealistic amount as compensation. "Mushtaq was asking for an amount that came to his mind for his injuries," Defence lawyer Abdullah Mohammad Salman told Gulf News.
