Police in Kikuube is investigating the circumstances under which an Indian national was found dead in a guest house.
The deceased has been identified as 40-year-old Mike Sultan, a resident of Hoima city. His lifeless body was found lying in his room in Kasonga guest house in Kasonga village, Kasonga parish in Kangwali sub-county on Tuesday morning.
According to preliminary information, the deceased travelled to Kyangwali on Monday to supply his clients with various items including soap, cooking oil, sugar, biscuits, and salt among others. He checked in at the guest around 6:30 pm after supplying the merchandise.
This morning, the guesthouse management became suspicious when he failed to wake up, prompting Edward Alinda the supervisor of the guest house to check, only to find him lying dead on his bed.
They immediately informed Kasonga police station, and officers rushed to the area. The deceased's driver, Moses Muvamuno Ssalongo, says he didn't complain of any illness when he checked into the guest house.
Ssalongo says that he too became suspicious when he made several calls to his boss in the morning in vain, which prompted him to approach the guest house management.
According to Julius Hakiza the Albertine region police spokesperson, a team of detectives from Kikuube central police station has been dispatched to the crime scene to ascertain what could have killed Sultan.
