Sister forgives brother

Shalveen Chand
Saturday, February 08, 2014

A MAN was handed a suspended sentence for punching his sister and swearing at her.

The Suva Magistrates Court convicted Pranil Singh of assault and annoying a person.

Singh took the stand yesterday morning and asked the court if he could take his plea.

He pleaded guilty to both counts.

According to the summary of facts, the incident took place last December when the complainant was visiting her mother who stayed with the accused.

The court heard that after an argument, Singh punched his sister on the face and at the same time used obscenities at her.

Singh admitted the facts.

The complainant who was in court told the court the accused made no attempt to apologise or reconcile but she had forgiven him.

Singh was given a suspended sentence and bound over for 12 months.
