AMPANG: A 58-year-old man was found hanged from a ceiling fan in his house in Taman Putra here.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Farouk Eshak said the victim's body was discovered by his wife at about 1.45pm on Friday (July 9).

"The victim's wife had just returned from buying necessities when she discovered the victim in their bedroom. The victim's daughter was also at home but she did not know when it happened," he said on Saturday (July 10).

Initial investigations revealed that the victim was suffering from depression as his business had closed down during the movement control order, he added.

"He had been receiving treatment at a specialist centre. He also received his first vaccination shot on June 14," he said.

ACP Mohamad Farouk said the victim's body had been sent to a nearby hospital for a post-mortem.

"The case is classified as sudden death," he added.
