An Indian male nurse was severely thrashed by five Emirati men at a hospital in Sharjah after they found him laughing at a grieving woman who fell down after hearing the news of their relative's death.

The incident took place on Saturday at Al Qassimi Hospital.

The nurse, who is said to be in his 30s, was described by police as having a smiling face, Gulf News reported on Monday.

He sustained bruises in the attack and was recuperating at the surgical department of the same hospital.

The attackers struck when a woman relative of the deceased fell on the ground as she was shocked.

The male nurse did not approach the woman to offer assistance. Meanwhile, the five men, thinking that the male nurse was laughing at the woman, attacked him.

Police have registered a case against the five.

Dr Arif Al Nooryani, Executive Director and Consultant Cardiologist at the hospital, confirmed the incident.

The hospital management has examined the surveillance camera installed at the hospital, which recorded the incident, and handed the footage to the police.
