Police have reported that a man was taken to Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) this morning in a critical condition after attempting to hang himself.
Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam confirmed that police responded to the incident at 10:50am and said the man’s condition was “very critical”.
The man’s brother told Minivan News he was found inside the house in a house in Male’, and while his condition had improved he was still in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
”We do not know why he did it,” he told Minivan News, adding that the man had a wife and three children.
IGMH said it would not provide further information on the man’s condition as the family had requested privacy.
