reminding one of the deadly turf wars by rival groups of bootleggers in the past years two pakistani workers died and five others suffered serious injuries in a group clash in al sajja industrial area of sharjah on thursday.

as in the infamous case of 2009 in which 17 indians were sentenced to death for killing a pakistani worker and later pardoned this incident also happened in one of the labour accommodation clusters in the area.

the two deceased identified as 25-year-old n.a. and 33-year-old f.b. died instantly as they were hit on their heads with solid and sharp tools.

the police received a call from other workers about a group fight. the officers who reached the scene found two bodies lying in a pool of blood and five seriously injured persons. the injured wereshifted to al kuwaiti and al qasimi hospitals and the bodies were taken to the police’s forensic laboratory for further investigation.

the police said the fight was between two gangs of bootleggers over the area where they operated.

the police have detained many workers who allegedly took part in the fight for interrogation and to determine who were involved in the murder of the two pakistani workers and injured the others.

in january 2009 a pakistani worker named misri nazir khan was killed and three of his compatriots were injured badly in a fierce fight by two groups in al sajja industrial area. seventeen indians were later awarded death penalty for the crime but were released after the family of the deceased pardoned them after indian philanthropists raised the blood money the convicts had to pay.
