BREAKING: Man dies after attack in One&Only hotel
Dubai police have launched an investigation into the death of a prominent Indian businessman
Sources close to the deceased have told Hotelier sister magazine Arabian Business that prominent Indian businessman Mahendran Yadav was attacked by an unnamed Arab national at a Dubai hotel on Sunday night.
Dubai Police have launched an investigation into the death of Yadav, who was managing director of Emirates Homes Real Estate Brokers (EHREB), having started his career in Dubai as a driver and worked his way up to become a real estate success.
Sources claim that Yadav and a group of friends chatting with a group of friends in the shisha lounge of the One&Only Royal Mirage on Sunday shortly before the alleged attack.
They claim that just before midnight, a dispute began between Yadav and an Arab national due to mobile phone photographs, after which the alleged attack happened.
Sources say that Yadav was rushed by ambulance to Rashid Hospital where he was placed on life support and subsequently died.
Yadav (pictured below), who earned a business degree from Maduri Kamarj University in India, arrived in Dubai and was employed as a driver before we worked his way up the ladder and made his fortune as a real estate broker, heading up the Emirates Homes Real Estate Brokers firm since 2003.
Yadav’s wife and family arrived in Dubai on Monday, shortly before he died at around 7:30pm last night. A large group of people are believed to have gathered outside the hospital when news spread of the incident.
Emirates Homes Real Estate Brokers and the One&Only Royal Mirage hotel have been contacted for comment, though EHREB commented on Arabian Business’s Facebook page saying of Yadav, “He’s a man with a big heart, he’s not a boss around his staff but a real friend.”
