    Section 325 (of the Penal Code) concerns a more serious type of hurt than s 323, and, as a result, carries with it greater penalties (10 years and fine/caning, as opposed to 2 years and/or fine up to $5,000 under s 323.) Section 320 of the Penal Code designates certain types of hurt which constitute “grievous hurt”, including permanent privation of the sight of either eye or the hearing in either ear, permanent disfiguration of the head or face, and fracture or dislocation of a bone.
