Abu Dhabi, May 8 (ANI): United Arab Emirate police have confirmed that an active member of the Indian community had committed suicide on April 29 in Masafi in Fujairah.

According to the Gulf News, Vasudevan Sugathan, 61, who belonged to Kollam in Kerala, hung himself to death.

Sugathan was working as an X-ray technician in the Ministry of Health in Sharjah for the past 37 years.

Friends of the Sugathan family said: "He was facing financial issues, apparently after borrowing money from some individuals. There were also some family issues."

"On Sunday, Sugathan drove himself to Masafi from Sharjah and hanged himself ... at a construction site. He spoke to his children and asked them to take care of their mother and asked for their forgiveness before switching off his mobile phone," a source close to the family said.

Sugathan was known for his work as a secretary of the Sharjah unit of Sevanam, an Indian community organisation, affiliated to the Indian Consulate's Indian Community Welfare Committee.

He had even received an award from the Ministry of Health for his professional services and another award from the Sharjah Indian Association for community services last year.

Sugathan was living with his wife, daughter and a son, who are also working in the UAE. (ANI)
