An unidentified man, believed to be an Indian national, was found dead in the Johor Bahru gurdwara after being allowed to spend the night there.
He was sent to the gurdwara by a taxi driver, who guessed he was a Sikh, when he was found hanging around the city bus station the night before.
The man, who did not carry any identification documents, is believed to have died in his sleep.
The gurdwara management is trying to reach his next of kin or anyone who may recognise him. In conversations at the gurdwara last night, he mentioned Haryana and Jalandhar.
Last night, a taxi driver noticed the man who with a walking stick was moving about at the Johor Bahru bus station.
“The taxi driver brought him to the gurdwara and even gave him RM10 pocket money. He had Guru Ka Langgar last night as we had an evening programme, and we gave him a place to stay for the night. The next day, he had wanted to the Pudu Station (in Kuala Lumpur),” Gurdwara Sahib Johor Bahru committee president Manjeet Singh told Asia Samachar.
“At about 2pm, one of the volunteers went to wake him up, but he was lying motionless.”
The gurdwara committee has lodged a police report and the body has been taken to the local general hospital.
Those with information about the deceased can call Manjeet at +6013-779-1313.
