Indian man’s body found on Pattaya mountain

Indian man's body found on Pattaya mountain

Police officers from the Pattaya City Police Station, along with rescuers from the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation, launched an investigation into the discovery of a deceased foreign man on Big Buddha Mountain in Ban Ko Lan, Village No. 7, Na Kluea Subdistrict, Bang Lamung District, Chonburi Province.

The body was found at the summit of Big Buddha Mountain, situated 230 meters above sea level. The deceased has been identified as Mr. Gnanamurthy, a 31-year-old Indian national. A rope was found around his neck, secured to a tree. Upon examination, authorities found no signs of foul play.

Ms. Koi, 36, who operates a motorcycle rental service, disclosed that the deceased had been residing in Pattaya for two months. He had rented a motorcycle from her and borrowed money. He mentioned his father’s occupation as a police officer in India. Prior to the tragic incident, Mr. Gnanamurthy contacted his father requesting repayment of the borrowed funds, as he still owed expenses for the rented vehicle. “He showed me his texts to his family,” Ms. Koi recounted. She initially perceived his suicide threat as mere intimidation.

Initially, the police handed over the body to rescue workers, who transferred it to the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the Police Hospital for post-mortem examination. Coordination with the Indian embassy was also undertaken. Based on the evidence gathered, authorities concluded that financial distress, stemming from his inability to repay debts, had led to immense stress, ultimately resulting in his demise.
