Dubai, June 8th Saturday 11 AM
The bus accident which had taken 12 lives of Indian Expatriates living in Dubai, has proven again that we have responsible consulate system, very much interactive and inclusive for the needy at right time , said social worker Nazar Nandi by evaluating the continuous efforts by Consul General HE Vipul and consulate officials during the tremor of accident and in handling the rest of the activities to send the bodies to their home with record speed and in dignity. The first body was sent by yesterdays ( today early morning ) flight to Kochi (Jamaludheen) and the funeral is happening now at Thalikkulam Thrissur and the rest of the bodies will be flown by today itself.
Nandi says that unlike previous officials at consulate , our present CG Vipul was personally involving at all the places irrespective of Hospital, Police Station or Mortuary for consoling the relatives and friends of the deceased or the injured and to take immediate steps to send the bodies to their near and dear back home , without calculating the official working days or timings . It is to be appreciated from the bottom of our hearts as these officials re directed their attention to the most needy humanitarian aspects by avoiding their Eid holidays & pre-planned activities.
A total of 17 people killed in the fatal accident which occurred at 545 pm on Thursday at the Exit Rashidiya near sheikh Muhammad bin zayed road , Dubai where the Msalat Oman bus was coming from Muscat with 31 passengers which hit the traffic board due to ignorance of the driver on the height of the board & subsequently the bus was riding at higher speed than the designated speed. Other than 12 Indians, there are deceased from Oman, Pakistan and Ireland too.
One of the most relevant matters that social workers notice that honorable consul general Vipul is asking all to contact him directly when and where required for the Indian communities in Dubai regarding common causes at 050 7347676.
