A Bangladeshi expatriate worker at Atmosphere Kanifushi Resort in Lhaviyani atoll has been found hanged in a nearby uninhabited island after reports of his disappearance.

Several have controverted that he was hanged to death. His missing report was filed Monday morning while his body was found in Dihdhoo island which is in the same lagoon as the resort.

The expatriate’s body was found by the caretaker of the island. It remains unknown whether the expatriate went to the island for work or not.

Maldives Police Service has not shared any details of the case yet as it is currently under investigation.

It is a common practice for expatriates brought to work at specific companies to later flee to other places.
