DUBAI – A 19-year-old Indian student has jumped to his death from the fifth floor of a school building in Dubai, according to the Dubai Police.
Suicide is suspected but an investigation is underway to rule out foul play.
Police said the student was found lying in a pool of blood on Thursday morning at the Murdoch University Dubai campus.
He reportedly arrived at the campus with his father to pay his school fees before excusing himself to use the washroom.
It was after this that he reportedly jumped to death. The student reportedly did not show signs of depression prior to the incident.
Murdoch University Dubai, in a statement, expressed its condolences to the family members, friends and colleagues of he deceased.
“We are working closely with the relevant authorities. The University is also providing counseling services to all students and staff,” according to the statement. JMYDS/Expat Media
