2 Arabs accuse 30 workers of beating them up

Four Indian construction workers are on trial in Sharjah on charges of assaulting two Arab colleagues and causing injuries to them, but the two insist they were attacked by nearly 30 workers.

The police arrested four Indians following a scuffle with the two Arab workers at the construction site in the emirate.

A medical report showed the two Arabs suffered from bruises and fractures all over their bodies. One of them claimed he suffered from permanent disability in his hand.

?The two Arabs insisted in court that they were attacked by nearly 30 workers, but the judge told them only four had been arrested for assaulting them,? adding that hearings were adjourned to October 19 for more witnesses.
