Thiruvananthapuram: The mortal remains of Albert Augustine (48), a Malayali security officer who tragically lost his life during civil unrest in Sudan, were repatriated to his hometown of Alakode in Kannur district on Saturday. The body arrived at Kozhikode Airport from Delhi at 9:15 pm on Friday, and was subsequently transported to his residence in Kannur.

Augustine, an ex-serviceman, was killed in Khartoum on April 16 after being hit by stray bullets amid the ongoing violent conflict between the army and paramilitary. Nearly two weeks after, Sabella, the deceased's wife and their daughter Marietta landed at Cochin International Airport.

Augustine was working as a contract worker for the security forces in Sudan. He arrived in Sudan six months back in connection with the job. Last month, he visited Kerala since his son was leaving for UAE.

However, he returned immediately and later his wife and daughter visited Sudan to have some time together. The cruel twist of fate happened amid this.
