The Sharjah Criminal Court postponed to April 6 the case of an Asian charged with stabbing another twice with a knife, after a fight broke out between them following a dispute to control a liquor site. The move was meant to inform witnesses of evidence, and to instruct the Public Prosecution to provide data of blood parents, to determine whether they wanted retribution or blood money.
The first witness, working for the Sharjah Police Investigation Department, said that he interrogated the suspect in his Urdu language and he confessed that he was involved in a quarrel between two groups who fought over a liquor site in Industrial Area 17. He stabbed the victim, A.J, twice with a knife, then he and the others fled from the site of the quarrel, but after several days he was arrested.
The second witness, also working for the Sharjah Police Investigation Department, said that he accompanied the team that arrested the suspect and interrogated him. He added the suspect confessed to selling alcohol with a group of people in Industrial Area 17, and that he was involved in a fight with another group to control the place of sale.
The witness indicated that the quarrel occurred in a sandy area where the victim attended, along with 10 others carrying knives.
The victim also admitted stabbing the victim in the stomach, claiming his life, adding that he and his fellows had concealed the body in a sandy area in Industrial 10, confirming during the investigations that he had thrown the crime tool into the garbage.
In court, the suspect denied the charges and his statements in the investigations of the Public Prosecution, stressing that he was coerced during the investigations.
