SHARJAH:  On the arrest of three Arab juveniles on Saturday, Sharjah Police succeeded in solving the mystery of a saloon car that had been set on fire in Khorfakkan by an unknown person as an act of revenge.

The three juveniles, who included an Emirati and two Palestinians, were accused of premeditatedly setting fire to the Chevrolet car.

The teenagers had made preparations in advance to burn the car. They purchased a flammable liquid from a commercial outlet in Khorfakkan and poured it all on the car before using a cigarette lighter to set it on fire and flee the scene unnoticed during the early hours of Saturday.

The fire not only engulfed the Chevrolet car but also extended to two other cars parked nearby, causing severe damage to the cars.

The police said they received a call at the emergency room about the fire in the car.

The police along with the Civil Defence reached the location of the incident after a short while.

 The Civil Defence doused the fire in 10 minutes and the police launched the investigation which initially revealed that the fire was set intentionally by someone.

The police suspected two teenagers who they believed had a connection with the crime. On being arrested, two of the teenagers confessed that they had set the car on fire with the help with another friend who was watching the street.

 They did it out of revenge over a dispute they had with the owner of the car identified as S.A.H.

The police arrested the third teenager who was the accomplice of the other two in the crimes.

The three suspects are currently detained and will be referred to the Public Prosecution.
