An Indian man was found dead hanging from a tree near Jumeirah beach in Dubai. The man was identified as Sheehan, 27, who hailed from Kerala.
"The police was informed by a passer-by about the dead body hanging on a tree on Thursday morning.
On rushing to the site, we removed the body from the tree top and found some cuts on one of his hands," the Khaleej Times quoted a local police source as saying.
Police are investigating the cause of death and did not rule out any possibilities of a foul play in the death of the deceased.
"We do not have more information about the deceased. The body was identified by his brother and we have asked him to bring the passport of the deceased," the source added.
The brother of the deceased when contacted by the paper refused to comment on Sheehan's death.
Sheehan had recently joined Burj Al Arab and worked in its housekeeping department.
He had only recently joined the hotel and lived alone in his room. He was last seen at the hotel on Tuesday after he finished his duty in the morning shift, the newspaper said.
The hotel, however, refused to give any details on Sheehan saying the official spokesperson from its press department will contact the newspapers for further details on Friday.
