A 35-year-old Indian man was found hanging at his accommodation in
Ras Al Khaimah. With a suicide note found on his phone, it’s believed that the deceased, identified as Rinoj Raveendran, committed suicide.
His wife, Bini Banarjee, who is working with a jewellery firm in Sharjah, is in a state of shock, social workers said.
Prasad Sreedharan, a social worker affiliated with a medical committee recently constituted by the Consulate General of India in Dubai, told Khaleej Times that the deceased hailed from the south Indian state of Kerala.
The accountant is believed to have committed suicide due to “health issues”, according to the note he left on his mobile phone, Sreedharan said.
He apparently removed the fan from the ceiling of his room, which he was sharing with another fellow worker. His roommate found him hanging when he
returned on Saturday evening, Sreedharan said.

On being alerted, the police’s central operations room dispatched paramedics and security patrols, who found Raveendran dead.
“The deceased, who has a son studying in Kerala, left a note on his mobile phone saying no one (should) be held responsible for his death and that he was taking the extreme step due to health issues. I don’t understand why people fail to seek help instead of ending their lives and leaving their beloved family devastated. This is probably the 10th suicide case of Indian nationals in RAK in three months.”
The deceased used to work in Al Ghail industrial area. His colleagues remember him as a “very dedicated” employee.
“He completed all the work entrusted to him even on the same day (Saturday morning) of his death,” Sreedharan added.
Police sources said investigations are under way to identify the reasons behind the victim’s apparent suicide. “A report on the same shall be issued later on.”
Dr Nisham Noorudheen, president of the Ras Al Khaimah Indian Relief Committee (IRC), told Khaleej Times that the body has been kept in the morgue of a hospital.
“The repatriation process will be initiated shortly by the Ras Al Khaimah IRC.”
Two weeks ago, an Indian staff surveyor with the Ras Al Khaimah department of public works committed suicide.
