Ras Al Khaimah: An Indian working for a cleaning company committed suicide by hanging himself in the toilet of a mosque.
Lieutenant Colonel Abdullah Munakhas, who heads the investigation, said the victim had tied a rope from a high window in the toilet and hanged himself from it. People who came for Al Fajr prayers at the central post office mosque were shocked to find the body and informed the mosque authorities who later called in the police.
Police said the Indian, identified as M.B., was suffering from health and work related problems. The victim’s brother told the police that M.B., who was suffering from asthma, had unsuccessfully tried to quit his job as he was not happy with his work.
The victim was working as a cleaner for a cleaning company and was posted at the Ras Al Khaimah Central Post Office.
