November 20, 2012

The man accused of killing a doctor in Abu Dhabi has reportedly committed suicide.

The 46-year-old Pakistani, Mohammad Jamil, allegedly hanged himself on November 10, Gulf News reported, citing official sources.

According to the report, Jamil's death certificate said the cause of death was cardio respiratory arrest during strangulation.

Abu Dhabi's Pakistani Embassy had issued a no-objection certificate for a relative to repatriate Jamil's body to Pakistan.

Jamil was accused of stabbing 62-year-old urologist, Dr Rajan Daniel, to death with a kitchen knife on November 1 in the doctor's office at Abu Dhabi's Ahalia hospital.

Reports say Jamil was seeking treatment from Dr. Daniel for a  disease and allegedly committed the crime as he was not getting any relief.

Jamil, a truck driver, had earlier attempted to commit suicide while in police custody.

Abu Dhabi Police were not available for comment, Gulf News said.
