“He is from Pakistan. The shophouse is known as a temporary shelter for refugees. So, he was found hanged by passers-by as behind the shophouse is a public street,” Hambali said on December 7.
He said that Abdul Husen’s body had been taken to the Kramatjati Police Hospital in East Jakarta for an autopsy.
Based on preliminary findings, police ruled out foul play as there was no sign of violence others than rope marks around the victim’s neck, he said.
“In plain sight, there is no sign of violence. The hanging rope marks around the neck. The body has been taken to the Kramatjati Police Hospital [for further investigation],” he said.
Currently, the case is still under investigation and the police are coordinating with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) regarding the death of the Pakistani national, Hambali said.
