Power sabotage trial set to begin.

WITNESSES will be called to testify in the trial of three Bahrainis who allegedly torched an electricity pylon in Sitra.

The defendants allegedly exploded a gas cylinder next to the pylon, resulting in power cuts across East Riffa and Sanad.

Judges at the High Criminal Court yesterday adjourned the case until November 14 to summon witnesses.

Meanwhile, a Bahraini was yesterday remanded in custody for 15 days in a separate case for allegedly vandalising another electricity pylon in Sitra, causing power cuts in the area.

He is also accused of exploding a gas cylinder to cause the damage.

The 28-year-old is standing trial at the Lower Criminal Court.
