Two killed in separate attacks in Sharjah

Two men, including an Emirati, were found killed separately in the past week, police confirm.

SHARJAH // Two men, including an Emirati, were found killed separately in the past week, police confirmed yesterday. The body of an Indian, 29, was found last Sunday in the Maysaloon area. A 52-year-old Emirati was found dead in his Ghubaiba home on Tuesday. Humaid al Hudaidi, the director general of Sharjah Police, said both victims were visibly wounded. "We have referred the bodies to the police forensic department. We would wait for their report as well as the CID investigations report to take action," Mr al Hudaidi said.

There have been several apparently unconnected murders in the emirate in recent weeks. Two weeks ago, an Indian man was arrested after a 32-year-old compatriot was found stabbed to death next to a cement factory in Sharjah. In mid-January, a man was charged after his 15-year-old nephew was stabbed to death in their home. Later that month a man was beaten to death during a fight in the Sajja industrial estate.
