Dubai: A Palestinian expatriate living in Kuwait has stabbed his 27-year-old brother in the back of the neck following a fight over singing loudly, Al Anba daily reported.

The daily, quoting a security official, added that as soon as the Operations Room of the Ministry of Interior received a report on the incident, police and paramedics were dispatched to the home of the victim located in Baghdad Street next to Al Wahaib Mosque. The victim was taken to the Mubarak Al Kabir Hospital.

The injury is not believed to be life threatening. It was reported that the suspect, upon hearing the police siren, escaped from the house but his description has been circulated to all police patrols and security agencies for his arrest.

According to the victim, the suspect was annoyed after his brother kept singing loudly despite being told not to do so. Consequently, an altercation erupted between the two and one of them rushed to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed his brother.

Although the victim is expected to submit a waiver, security authorities are still searching for the suspect.
