Indian Worker Found Dead

RAS AL KHAIMAH - A 47-year-old Indian worker was found dead inside his apartment near his work place in Al Digdaga area.

Lt. Col. Yaqoub Al Haddad, Chief of Al Digdaga Police Station, said the body was found hanging on a rope tied to the ceiling, and is a case of suicide.

The deceased’s son, who had been working with him in the same construction company, said that he and his friends spent the entire Friday with his father at their house and had left at night.

He tried contacting him but the mobile phone was switched off. He said there was no reason why his father should commit suicide.

Worker critically injured

In a different incident on Sunday morning, a municipal worker sustained severe injuries when a speeding vehicle knocked him down and ran over him, as he was cleaning the road in the Khor Al Khoir area.

A source from the Traffic and Licensing Police said the victim was identified as Dhiyah Rahman, 23, a Bangladeshi national and an employee of Ras Al Khaimah Municipality.

Rahman was on duty sweeping rubbish from the roadside when a vehicle driven by a 37-year-old Emirati man hit him as he tried to overtake a heavy truck from the right side of the road, said the officer.
