A 40-year-old man died by suicide in LuckyOne Mall at Karachi’s Rashid Minhas Road, the police confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

The man was on the third floor of the building when he attempted to take his life. He succumbed to his injuries during treatment at a healthcare centre in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Block IV.

The body has been moved to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for medico-legal formalities.

The SHO of the Federal B Industrial Area police station, Jameel Abbasi, reached and cordoned off the site. He said the police have obtained CCTV footage from the mall administration and begun investigations.

However, the mall has issued a statement following the incident and expressed condolences to the grieving family.

The management has said that the authorities took the 40-year-old man to the nearest hospital and informed the police.
