Sharjah: A 34-year-old expat man in Sharjah suffered severe head injuries after he was beaten with a hammer by attackers. The man sustained brain haemorrhage and was admitted to hospital in a serious condition.

He told the police that a number of men had beaten him up after he sold his car to another man, though he did not transfer the car’s ownership to the purchaser. The purchaser was arrested after police found drugs in the car.

The victim told the police that he had bought the car from another man, but the ownership was still under the name of the original owner. He denied knowing anything about the drugs found inside the car. Buhairah Police Station has launched an investigation into the incident.
