Two Indians were among seven men have been charged with criminal intimidation and assault on a Singaporean restaurant manager who was left with a permanent disfigured face, a media report said today.
Koleth Navas, 29 and Koleth Abdul Nasir, 41, were involved in allegedly threatening Victory Restaurant manager Liakath Ali, 52, days before his face was attacked with a knife, the Straits Times reported.
"I have your photograph in my mobile phone, you watch out," Navas, accused of abetting a conspiracy with Zackeer Abbass Khan and Anwer Ambiya Kadir Maideen to grievously injure Ali, had threatened him on August 22.
Nasir faces one charge of threatening Ali.
One of the seven men had intimidated Ali in Tamil, "watch out, in one week I will do you."
Three Singaporeans, Joshua Navindran Surainthiran, Joel Giritharan and Ramge Visvamnathan have been charged with grievously hurting Ali by slashing his face with a knife on August 26.
The Indian duo's passports have been impounded and they have been asked to report to the investigation officer every Wednesday if they are out on bail.
