According to an HT report, the police have registered a case of accidental death.

“The man took a taxi from Haji Ali around 9 pm. The taxi driver told us he didn’t speak to him through the journey. He asked him to stop the vehicle at the sea link, saying he wanted to relieve himself. The taxi driver refused, but the man fought with him and got him to stop,” said the officer, according to HT.
