What a way to die...
A 23-year-old Sri Lankan salesman working at a grocery shop in Bin Mahmoud was killed in an accident on Friday evening when he chased a customer who tried to flee the place without making payment. The incident took place around 9.45pm.
The victim, identified as Mohamed Murshed, was run over by the erring customer’s car when he reportedly tried to cling on to the vehicle’s side glass. The customer had ordered soft-drinks while still sitting in his vehicle.
Sources said that the youth was found dead on the road about 200 metres from the grocery.
Murshed died of severe head injuries. The motorist, reportedly driving a four wheel, sped away.
The shop owner said Murshed had been working for him for about two years. He said there had been several incidents of customers leaving without making payments for purchases.
In a similar incident a few months ago in Najma, a salesman was injured while chasing a motorist who failed to pay after making some purchases from a local grocery.
