Durban - A Durban woman is said to be deeply upset after her ex-lover, who she was suing for breaking her virginity and a vow to marry her, committed suicide at the Wild Coast Sun.

The Sunday Tribune reported that Umkomaas doctor Kuben Nair, 40, was found hanging in his hotel room on Thursday.

The woman - described only as “an unnamed advocate” - was suing him for R2 million for allegedly “ruining her virginity” and breaking a promise to marry her.

The attorney representing her said the woman was “highly emotional and traumatised”.

Nair, a divorced father of one, apparently denied that he had promised to marry the woman.

Thousands of people, including former patients and friends, came to Nair’s funeral on Saturday where he was remembered as a man who had touched many lives and who had loved helping people.
