Karachi: Retired official commits suicide
Karachi: A retired employee of the Education Department committed suicide at his residence in the Saeedabad police limits on Tuesday. Abdul Majeed, 70, hanged himself to death from a ceiling fan at his residence in Sector D/3.
His neighbours came along with lunch and knocked at the door but failed to receive a reply. In the meantime, other neighbours came over and broke open the door, only to find his body hanging from the ceiling fan.
They immediately informed the police who shifted his body to the Civil Hospital for legal formalities.
According to the police, the deceased was a retired employee of the Education Department and lived alone. The police added the man had been depressed since his wife’s death last year.
Meanwhile, Imran, 35, was knocked to death when a hit-and-run vehicle ran him over near Baldia Town while he was going on his motorcycle.
