Three Indian students died on the spot in a horrific accident that occurred in Al Madam-Al Sameed road in Sharjah.

The deceased have been identified as Ashmid Ashraf (20) from Kozhikkode; Shifaam Musthafa (20) from Panoor, Kannur; and Mohammed Sunoon (21) from Kozhikkode.

The youths were returning after visiting a friend's house when the horrific accident took place in Sharjah's Madam area around 1.30am. The driver of the youths' car tried to take a U-turn from an unauthorised area on the road, when another speeding car crashed into theirs.
The three youths were killed on the spot, while the driver of the other car - a 25-year-old Yemeni - sustained minor injuries.

Meanwhile, the Middlesex University has expressed deep condolences to the families of the boys.
"Middlesex University Dubai Students and Staff mourn the loss of Ashmid Ashraf, Muhammed Shifam and Mohammed Sunoon in a tragic accident. Our deepest sympathies and condolences to their families," reads the Facebook post of the university.
