Another Keralite to return from UAE to attend wife's funeral
Abu Dhabi: Attingal native Prasanthan Prabhakaran Nair will return to Kerala on Saturday to see his wife for the final time. His wife, Mini (40), passed away due to pneumonia on Thursday.
Prasanthan is working in Dubai as a driver. Mini was admitted in the hospital and was put in ventilator for the past one week. Prasanthan had registered his name in the Indian embassy for his return immediately when he was informed about the news.
Dr Hashik Thykkandy said that Prasanthan will be returning by the Air India Express IX 538 flight from terminal 1 of Abu Dhabi International Airport on Saturday evening at 5 pm.
Similarly, a few days back, Palakkad native Vijayakumar was in the news as he could not get a ticket to return to Kerala from Dubai after his wife had passed away. However, Vijayakumar's return journey was made possible, thanks to interventions made by social workers in UAE
