(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) 19-year-old Kuwaiti national was tortured and physically assaulted for three days, say police.



The Sharjah Sharia Court of First Instance on Tuesday held a "closed hearing" on the murder case of 19-year-old Kuwaiti national Mubarak Meshaal Al Mubarak, a first-year student at the University of Sharjah



Suspects Y.H., 18, and H.M., 19, who were arrested for assaulting the victim for three days, were charged with deprivation of the victims' freedom, torture and premeditated murder at the court. A third suspect had fled the country after the incident



Judge Hussein Al Asoogi adjourned the court to February 18



Lawyer Salem bin Sahoo, who represents the family of the victim, told Khaleej Times outside the court room that the victim's family members requested the court for Qasas (retribution). According to Bin Sahoo, the suspects have confessed to the crime and all evidence collected at the crime scene point to their involvement. The evidence reportedly includes a video footage, which runs for over six minutes, taken from a suspect's phone



The victim's parents, an uncle and an aunt were present at Tuesday's hearing. His mother broke down in tears outside the court and said: "My son was very polite and quiet. I cannot understand or accept what happened. How could his friends be so heartless as to torture him to death over such a small quarrel.



The Sharjah Police received a report in February last year from the University Hospital that a Kuwaiti student succumbed to his injuries after his friend rushed him to the hospital with critical injuries



In subsequent investigations, the police said the two accused, who had been studying at the university for a year, tortured the victim. The victim had joined the College of Communications at the university just two weeks before he was murdered



The victim's friend had rushed him to the hospital after he fainted in a coffee shop in Muweilah area of Sharjah. When questioned, the friend told the police the victim had told him that the suspects tortured him for three days over some financial disputes at their apartment in Abu Daneq area



A forensic report said signs of beatings and burn marks had been found on the victim's body



The third suspect did not directly take part in the crime, according to the Sharjah Police, but did not inform legal authorities about it



The murder had shocked the Kuwaiti community in the UAE
