In a sad and shocking case, a 28-year-old man from Kerala, who worked in Dubai, died on June 7. Last month, his pregnant wife had moved the Supreme Court for an early repatriation during the COVID-19 lockdown. His wife, identified as Athira Geetha Sreedharan, gave birth to their first child in Kozhikode today.

Athira is still unaware about her husband's death. The deceased has been identified as Nithin Chandran, a mechanical engineer, who died in his sleep. The sad incident happened exactly a month after his wife Athira flew home on the first repatriation flight from Dubai.   

As per the Gulf News report, the cause of his death is still not known, but his friends stated that he was undergoing treatment for high blood pressure and a heart condition that might have suffered a heart attack.

Earlier last month, the couple had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking an early repatriation as the woman was to deliver their first baby which was due in the first week of July. After days of waiting, Athira, an electronics and communication engineer, left for Kerala on May 7 under the Vande Bharat Mission.

While, Nithin stayed back in Dubai due to his work schedule. Reports also suggest that, Athira managed to get a ticket after the Indian Council General in Dubai put her on high-priority list owing to her advanced stage of pregnancy.

“Nithin worked a lot for the community, especially arranging blood donation camps and volunteering during COVID situations. I give my sincere condolences to the family and hope that they are able to withstand this big and untimely loss,” Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul told the daily.

Currently, Nithin's close friends have moved his mortal remains to the Dubai Police mortuary near Al Twar in Dubai. They are also hoping to send his body to India for the final rites.

Meanwhile, Hyder Kodanad Thattathazhath, president of Incas Youth Wing, stated that "We have given his samples for a Covid-19 test. If the results return negative, we will do everything in our power to repatriate his body."
