325 Voluntarily causing grievous hurt

Max punishment = Imprisonment for 10 years, and fine, or caning

352 Assault or use of criminal force otherwise than on grave and sudden provocation

Max punishment = Imprisonment for 3 months, or fine*, or both

358 Assault or use of criminal force on grave and sudden provocation

Max punishment = Imprisonment for one month, or fine*, or both


Not sure which one they will use.. so here's the list.

:dunno:

in any case, the violence-doer is going to be disadvantaged in the eyes of the law, wherever it is

which is why in any confrontation, use your mouth, but never ever use your fists, it will never be in your favour

assault, if reported to police, is considered criminal case.
hence the summons to court i believe.

but then, it is the Deputy Public Prosecutor who will be the prosecuting party on the behalf of the State (hence criminal case cos it is the State who prosecute the case) ... if normal lawyer, it is a civil case ...

If I remember correctly, Police dun normally step in cos unless beat until cannot work or something similiar, otherwise too many such case to handle and sometimes, it is meaningless to handle ... on top of it, once it becomes a criminal case, the family could be headed for breakup cos of the bad feelings involved and the criminal records (last time) ... so normally police jus note the case and advise that the injuried party seek address by way of civil courts ... worse come worse is pay money only ...

even for civil case, you can be summoned to the courts ...
