Mr Janjua’s body was discovered by his friend and taken to Cooper Hospital for post mortem. “He was not feeling well so I took him to the hospital last night where he was diagnosed with acidity.

When nobody answered the door, we called the police and discovered he was dead,” his friend told the press.
