Phadi said the investigations are continuing to establish circumstances that led to the incident.

“It is still a fresh matter but we suspect he committed suicide. The patient was admitted on the 7th of this month and according to the health care workers he did not show any suicidal signs. He did not leave any note. This is the first incident to occur at the hospital. Suicide is not a solution to problems and my advice is that people should seek help from the relevant authorities. The sad thing is that he was at the right place where counselling could have been arranged,” said Phadi
