A 25-year-old Indian youth from Kerala, Sabeel Rahman, allegedly fell to death from a residential apartment in Dubai, according to social workers handling his case. The incident reportedly took place in Silicon Oasis.

Rahman, a planning engineer who has been living in Dubai since 2018, fell off a building near his work site, said Naseer Vatanapally, a social worker. Vatanapally is assisting the family to repatriate his mortal remains back home to Thirur in Malappuram district.
"The case is a bit unusual. We're not sure why he went to the building near his worksite," said Vatanapally.
"His family is unaware of any issues he may have faced. He had asked his brother to collect a new mobile phone he had purchased online - which they received. He had no reason to take his life," he added.
Rahman was the youngest of four siblings. The devastated family is awaiting details from Rashidiya Police Station. "Following legal procedures, we will repatriate his body back home," he said.
Dubai Police comments are awaited.
