Indian-origin man found dead in UK hotel room
London: An Indian-origin man believed to be a solicitor has been found dead in a hotel room in south east London.
Scotland Yard officers involved in the search for John Neville Singh found him unresponsive in a room at the Premier Inn hotel on Lansdowne Road in Croydon on Friday.
He was reported missing from his home in Mitcham, south London, on August 19.
Formal identification is yet to take place but officers believe they are satisfied that the body is that of 67-year- old Singh.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time,” the Metropolitan Police said.
A post-mortem examination has been scheduled and Singh’s next of kin have been informed.
According to a LinkedIn profile in his name, Singh was a solicitor with more than 30 years of experience in civil litigation and a former magistrate in the Central American nation of Belize.
He had been the principal of John Neville & Co. solicitors and bankruptcy consultants since 1983.
