Hindu man found hanging in Bahrain

005443DUBAI: The body of a 40-year-old Indian man has been found in an under-construction building in Bahrain, seven to 10 days after he died, a media report said on Sunday.

Jam Rajeesh’s body was found hanging in the building in Manama yesterday after residents complained of a stench emanating from inside the structure.

Police said he died seven to 10 days ago, Gulf Daily News reported.

They suspect it’s a case of suicide, however, an investigation is being carried out to ascertain the cause of the death.

Suicide by expats from South Asia is on the rise in the country. Three persons have committed suicide in the past week ostensibly due to financial crisis.

Naseer Anil, 34 and from India, was found hanging from the top of a stairwell at a residential building in Gudaibiya, a media report said on Friday.

At least 26 people, mainly low-income Asian workers, are known to have killed themselves last year.
