According to reports, nobody was aware that the man, who rested his head on his steering, had passed on while waiting on the queue, until when other customers were pressing their car horns to alert him to move forward that they realised that he was dead.

In meantime, the victim’s car, with number plate AKD 878 GP, had been moved to the nearest police station, while his corpse was deposited in an undisclosed morgue.
