3 Indian students from Kerala killed in horrific road accident in UAE


Dubai, Mar 13: Three Indian students in the UAE were killed on the spot in a horrific car accident in Sharjah, police said.

The incident took place on Al Dhaid-Al Madam Road in Sharjah in the wee hours yesterday. Ashmid Ashraf, 20, Muhammad Shifam, 20 and Mohammad Shounoub, 21 were returning to Dubai after a short holiday at a friend's house when they met with the accident.


All the three students were from Kerala, Gulf News reported.

The driver of the youths' car is said to have tried to take a U-turn from an unauthorised area on the road, when another speeding car crashed into their vehicle. The three students were killed on the spot.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 25-year-old Yemeni, sustained minor injuries. Colonel Haran Mubark Al Jazai, acting police director of Eastern Region, said the vehicle carrying the students caused the accident.

He said the student's vehicle entered the road from a prohibited area and collided with another vehicle which was travelling on its path. Ashraf from Kozhikode and Shifam from Kannur were studying at Middlesex University in Dubai. Their friend Shounoub was also from Kozhikode, the report said.

The Kerala Muslim Cultural Community is making efforts to get the bodies released for repatriation to Kerala, it said.

"Middlesex University Dubai students and staff mourn the loss of our students Ashmid Ashraf, Muhammad Shifam and their friend Mohammad Shounoub in a tragic accident. Our deepest sympathies and condolences to their families," the university said in a statement.
