A prominent paper of UAE reported,"Sharjah Police are investigating the death of three Indians whose bodies were found in diesel tanks in Al Saja'a area in Sharjah. After receiving an alert, police dispatched their team, an ambulance and forensic experts."

"The bodies were removed and transferred to the forensic laboratory for an autopsy to determine the cause of the death," the report said.

"The police launched an investigation to rule out criminal acts behind their death," it added.

Offering her condolences to the bereaved families, Sushma Swaraj said,"Our mission will provide them with all help and assistance."
