Dubai: A newly-wed Indian man allegedly committed suicide on Sunday by jumping from the 10th floor of a building in Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) after a fight with his wife, according to a senior police official.

Brigadier Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, director of the Dubai Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID), said a 27-year-old man killed himself by jumping from the balcony of his apartment.

Al Mansouri said that initial investigations and forensic examinations revealed that there was no suspicion of criminal act behind the incident. “This is a suicide and not homicide,” he added.

He said that the incident occurred on Sunday after a dispute between the man and his wife. They got married a year ago.

“The man fought with his wife and she decided to leave the house,” Al Mansouri said, adding that the husband jumped from balcony as soon as his wife left the house. He died immediately.

The body of the man was sent for forensic examination while the police are investigating the incident.
