Put a charger on a battery and try to start the car. If the situation is the same, you might have a bad starter. Have someone hit the starter while you turn the ignition switch, if the car starts, you know the issue. 

Sorry for the late reply, it was a starter that had gone bad, after its replacement it works perfectly.

No problem. Thanks for the update.

Sounds to me like a bad starter.

But first connect a battery tester and see if your car charges it properly and the battery is in good health - batteries nowadays are disposable crap.
