Manjurul Alam, the only son of Ali Ahmed of Nasir Mohammad Chowdhury’s house in Hazir Pukur Par of Mirzapur Union in Hathazari Upazila of Chittagong, committed suicide by hanging himself at Seeb Bazar in Muscat. Police recovered his hanging body with a fan from his home at 3pm on Thursday.
According to the locals, Manju used to work in a hardware shop at Mozammel in Seeb Bazar. Mozammel Manju, a resident of Uttar Madarsha in the same upazila, was brought to Oman a year and a half ago with the rest of his visa money. Manzoor’s mother Hosne Ara said her son used to be on duty at the shop from 6 am to 12 noon. I had to go to the shop again with a little time to eat rice at noon. They gave him a room in the godown of their shop to stay the night. After entering the Warehouse, he would lock it from outside. He would never go outside without a shop and a godown. Manzoor’s mother cried and said that she would not pay Vetan because she was cutting visa fees. Sometimes he would give a little money. I used to cry again and again for leaving the country, I used to say be patient for two years. ‘
Manzoor’s friends, who live in Oman, said, “I spoke to him a day before he died. He kept talking about his suffering. There were days when he would not even pay for breakfast. He worked without food. If he wanted to leave the country, he would say, ‘Pay all the visa money and airfare then I can go’. My friend was forced to commit suicide by mental torture. ‘
Meanwhile, the police recovered the body and took it to the morgue. Collecting corona samples there makes the corona positive. According to the new rules of the government of Oman, the body is buried immediately without waiting for the consent of the family by informing the embassy. The body was buried under the care of Amarat Cemetery Administration on Tuesday.
