Hospitalised bank manager vows never to return to the Maldives

The manager of Habib Bank in Male’ who was hospitalised after he was  attacked by four masked men waiting outside his house last week, has told Haveeru he is “leaving, never to return.”

Pakistan-born Mohamed Anjul Jameel said that he had always described the Maldives to his friends as a “harmonious country”, but the attack had changed his view completely.

The 56 year old was stabbed in after four men broke into his apartment on the sixth floor of Machangolhi Uraha in Male’.

He speculated that the men had known his contract was almost over and that he was preparing to leave the country, and were after his savings.

“After snatching my wallet and searching the apartment, they asked me where I kept the money. They injured me severely, as I did not respond to them,” he said.
