The body of a 42-year old man was found hanging on a tree in the District Integrated Court Complex early this morning.

The body of the man was found by some court staff, who immediately informed police and senior lawyers, police said.

The man was a familiar face in the complex as he used to bring tea to lawyers.

The man was reportedly mentally unsound for the last few months.

Senior Judges, including the Chief Judicial Magistrate and Bar Association office bearers also reached the complex on hearing the news.
