Indian expatriate dies in Abu Dhabi, body brought to India after eight days

Saturday November 13, 2010 12:27:00 PM, ummid.com Staff Reporter

Malegaon: An Indian expatriate who was working with a Sharjah based construction company died in Abu Dhabi November 05. His body could be brought to India only on November 13 after the efforts of full eight days taken by the family members and fellow expatriates in UAE.

 

Ansari Zulfikar Ahamd (40) of Malegaon was working in Emirate Construction Company (ECC) since last more than five years. He died due to cardiac arrest last Friday in the night, informed Saood Ansari, Zulfikar's younger brother.

 

They were informed about Zulfikar's death the following morning on November 06 by the company Manager Abdus Sattar, he added.

 

Zulfikar is survived by wife and two children - one aged 3 and half years, and the other of one year, besides father, younger brother and two sisters.

 

After deliberations among the family members, it was decided to bring the dead body from Abu Dhabi for funeral here in Malegaon. However, it was only after eight days and immense difficulties the family members faced that the dead body finally reached Mumbai November 13 early in the morning.

 

"Had it not been for the unprecedented efforts taken by the other people from Malegaon who are working in UAE, we would have not been able to perform Zulfikar's funeral here", said Saood in a choked voice.

 

"The company PRO and Manager extended full support. But, they are Uzair Ahmed, Iqbal Ansari, Abdur Raqueeb and others who tirelessly worked to get all the requisite documents done for the deportation of the body from Abu Dhabi to India", he said.

 

However, waiting for the dead body for such a long time was really testing and traumatic for the family members specially Zulfikar's wife.

 

"It would be of great help if there is some kind of mechanism and support system at the embassy level to handle such kind of eventuality", said Mohd Salik, Zulfikar's cousin who was literally hooked to telephone for the entire week trying to get the early deportation of the dead body from UAE.

 

The Gulf countries are among the few countries in the world where a large number of Indians have migrated for work and such a demand has been raised in the past as well.
