Azan Majid Janjua, an 11 year old fifth grader from Abu Dhabi went missing after returning to his home building after attending prayers at the mosque. His body was found the following day by air conditioning technicians who were on the roof top of his building to repair a faulty air conditioning unit. He was found half naked with his Quran next to him.
Neighbours had seen the boy returning home from mosque but he never made it to his flat. His father, Dr Majid Janjua and other family members had retraced his steps in an effort to find the missing child but had never thought to go to the roof.
Janjua says that his child was very religious and was fasting and praying during Ramadan. Azan had just recently come to stay with his father. He is the first born child. Janjua met his mother while he was in Russia studying medicine. Azan stayed with his mother. He moved in with his father two years ago. His mother would visit him frequently. She had been to see him on the day he disappeared.
Gulf News reports that he was a happy child and got on well with his two younger siblings.
