Sharjah Police Criminal Investigation Department director Yousif Al Naqbi said that at around 5:30pm the police received a call from Al Kuwaiti hospital informing that a passerby noticed bad smell emanating from the parking lot.

When the staff searched the parking lot they found the decomposed bodies in a Toyota Corolla, a hire car, with the plate number K Dubai 38728.

“The bodies had been in the parking lot for at least four days,” Al Naqbi said.

The forensic laboratory preliminary report revealed that Abdulla Kareem Darwish, 30 and Ghulam Abdul Rasoul Darwish, 32, died of heroin overdose.

The police later arrested two men and a woman, all Iranian in their houses in Al Qadisia Area.

During the interrogation, the three suspects reportedly said they were having a party in their house with the two Arab men.

The two men took overdose of heroin and the group tried to rush them to the emergency room at Al Kuwaiti hospital.

However, the two men died on the way and the trio panicked and left the bodies in the car in the parking lot and took a cab to return home.

The family of the two deceased reported them missing at the Al Seera police station four days ago.

While, Abdulla Kareem Darwish was married and had children, Ghulam Abdul Rasoul Darwish was single.

Both were working in a contracting company in Sharjah. During interrogation, the Iranian trio allegedly confessed to consuming drugs with the victims and said the drugs were bought from other individuals in Sharjah.

Police are also on the lookout for the drug dealers.

The three suspects have been charged with drug consumption, not informing the police of the crime and, prostitution, as the woman was unmarried and having a relationship with one of the men.

Al Naqbi urged Sharjah residents to cooperate with the police to curb the drug problem.
