Even as investigations are continuing, it appears to be yet another case of a distressed expatriate unable to cope up with the financial burden.
The deceased is an elderly Somali national aged between 62-68 years, according to Brigadier Mohamed Nasser Razzuqi, Deputy Director, Criminal Investigation for police stations.
Initial forensic reports rule out any foul play, the official said and added that it is believed he had committed suicide by throwing himself down from the fourth floor of the hotel.
The man who was working in the country was reportedly staying at the hotel with his daughter, who was visiting him on a visit visa. Brigadier Razzuqi said that he had financial problems and was also reported to be mentally unstable.
The deceased had sought his daughter’s help in sorting out his debts, but she allegedly declined any assistance, which forced him to end his life.
