Repatriation put on hold after mix-up

The repatriation of man's body from the UAE has been put on hold after an unfortunate mix up.

A mistake in identification led to the wrong body being sent to a deceased man's family members in Kerala after two bodies were released at around the same time.

29-year-old Nidhin Othayoth was found dead in his company accommodation earlier this week while Kamachi Krishnan, 39, died of cardiac arrest.

The Indian embassy, local authorities and airline officials are now working to ensure that the correct bodies are sent to the bereaved families as soon as possible.
