An Indian worker in Bahrain has been arrested on charges of murdering his roommate, also an Indian, in the course of a drunken row.
The arrested person, whose name has not been revealed, allegedly killed Shabeg Singh, 34, by hitting his head with a wooden log, according to a report in the Gulf Daily News.
The incident occurred in the duo's room at a labour camp in East Eker on Monday evening. Both the accused and the victim hailed from Punjab in India and worked at the same construction company in the Ma'ameer industrial area.
"The two men were drunk and entered into an argument - the reason for which the accused did not want to mention," the report quoted public prosecutor Mohammed Mirza Amaan as saying.
