Two suicides linked to Covid-19


KUALA LUMPUR: A 58 year old British national fell to his death at a plush apartment in Bukit Jalil on Sunday. The man was found lying motionless on the ground floor of the SkyLuxe Residence at about 9.40 am and was pronounced dead by the paramedics.

The Cheras police chief ACP Muhammad Idzam Jaafar has shared that the victim is believed to have jumped from the 19th floor of the building. Initial investigations showed that the victim had slipped into depression following the recent death of his wife who succumbed to Covid-19.

Meanwhile, in a separate and unrelated case, police received a call from a car wash centre operator that his 22-year-old staff was found hanged at the premises around 9.30 am on Sunday.

The victim who was suffering from emotional distress was also found to be undergoing two-years of police probation under laws of the Prevention of Crime Act (Poca) for an undisclosed offence. – BERNAMA
