According to early versions of the police, the victim hanged himself with a towel tied to a sink. Asked about this hypothesis death by asphyxiation in a sitting position, and in addition under a sink, Dr Satish Boolell, a former coroner, said that he has never seen such a thing in his entire career.
Is it possible to hang himself in a sink?
To this question, Dr Satish Boolell replied that by hanging there, we need the weight of the body to be kept in a vacuum. He added that someone can hang even when sitting, but we must analyze in minute detail the position of the body and the physical structure of the place, before deciding on such a possibility.
Thus, Dr Satish Boolell think the police should provide more information on the position of the body when it was discovered. However, he was puzzled by the circumstances of this tragedy at the Moka detention center.
