DUBAI 21 February 2019: An Asian man has committed suicide by jumping from the 24th floor of a building at Dubai Silicon Oasis.

The Command and Control Centre of Dubai Police had received an emergency call from the building’s watchman who reported that a man fell down of a building.

“Upon receiving the report, police patrol and a forensic expert were dispatched to the site to find out the Asian man had jumped to death from the high rise building,” said Brigadier Saeed Hamad Bin Sulaiman Al Malik, Director of Al Rashidiya Police Station, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Police Stations.

According to Brig. Al Malik, he had tricked the watchman into giving him the keys to a flat on the 24th floor pretending to be a potential tenant.

Brig. Al Malik said CCTV footage and forensic examinations confirmed the watchman’s claims. “The deceased went up alone to the flat after he had received the keys from the watchman. He took his shoes off and left his phone in the balcony then jumped to his own death.” Brig. Al Malik explained.

Brig. Al Malik explained that the whole incident happened quickly within less than 12 minutes.
