New Delhi, Jul 16: A 33-year-old Croatian national allegedly committed suicide at a hotel in south Delhi's Mahipalpur area, police said today. Nenad Kresoja, who worked at a school in Croatia, is believed to have slit his wrist with a shard of a window at the hotel he was staying, close to the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
"Prima facie, Kresoja committed suicide. An inquest has been initiated into the matter," said additional DCP (South) Nupur Prasad. However, no suicide note was recovered in the room or in his possession, a senior police official said.
The incident came to light around 2.30 AM when the hotel staff called up police after Kresoja was not spotted for a long time and did not respond to their phone calls. The hotel staff had also knocked at his door many times. Forensic teams have inspected the scene, which was also visited by the Croatian ambassador here, an official said.
Kresoja was visiting the national capital on a tourist visa and had been to China and Nepal before arriving here. The body has been kept at a mortuary for postmortem. The exact cause and time of the death can only be ascertained after the postmortem report is available, the official said.
