Dubai accident: Repatriation of Indian victims complete
Dubai: Repatriation of the bodies of the Indian victims in Thursday’s horrific bus accident in Dubai was finally completed on Sunday.
The repatriation of 11 Indians was complete with the last three bodies flown to Mumbai on an Air India flight that left from Dubai at 3.39 a.m. on Sunday, an official told Gulf News.
Meanwhile, the family of 22-year-old Roshni Moolchandani, the youngest Indian victim, completed her last rites at the Jebel Ali crematorium on Saturday evening.
Twelve of the 17 people who died after the Muscat-Dubai bus carrying 31 passengers crashed on to a height barrier were identified as Indians.
Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul told Gulf News on Saturday morning that the mortal remains of the Indian victims would be repatriated free of cost by Air India in cases where employers were not bearing expenses.
The consulate had issued travel documents for free and also offered to bear the cost of embalming in cases where the families needed support.
