An Indian died on Alitalia’s New Delhi-Milan flight on Monday (May 13), which led to an emergency landing at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Indian Embassy officials said on Tuesday (May 14).
52-year-old Kailash Chandra Saini, hails from Jhunjhunun district of Indian state of Rajasthan. Saini was accompanied by his 26-year-old son Heera Lal, who is now at the airport.
“The flight made an emergency landing on Monday. The body was taken to Mafraq Hospital. The formalities have been completed. The death certificate is issued today (Tuesday). The body will be repatriated on an Etihad flight hopefully by Wednesday (May 15) morning,” Embassy Counsellor M. Rajamurugan said.
“It is painful to see a son wait for his father’s mortal remains. This is an extremely unfortunate incident, but all the officials are working to see that the man’s body is repatriated at the earliest,” Kanhangad said.
