Mortal remains of an Indian national, who never left to India for vacation in the last 26 years, is lying in the mortuary here waiting for relatives or friends to identify his whereabouts. Indian national identified as Garu Pundalic Naique was found dead at his room near telecommunication tower in Abbasiya last week. According to report, he died of heart attack.

According to his passport, 62 year old Garu Pundalic Naique is the son of Pundalic Naique and Smt Gomathi. The place of birth as per his passport is Adpoiponds, Goa. The address in passport is given as House no 91, Kakodi, Moodi Kakoda, Goa.

Authorities confirmed that according to official papers, he never left Kuwait for the last 26 years.

It is learned that he was staying alone in a small room in Abbasiya. The only known friend is a Pakistani staying next to his room. On the previous day, he informed his Pakistani friend to help him go to the hospital next day morning as he was not feeling good. Accordingly, the Pakistani friend came to his door the next day morning only to find that he was not responding to the door bell. After a long wait, he informed the police. Police found that he was died due to heart attack. However the Pakistani friend has no much information about his personal details.

Community organisation KKMA’s team Magnet had initiated the process to send his mortal remains to India. However they are unable to proceed as they couldn’t get any of his Indian contacts. His mortal remains is kept in the mortuary. Officials also couldn’t find any Indian number on his mobile phone. It is also learned that he was working in a private company until two years back, however his residency expired last year and didn’t renew it further.

The fact that he never travelled out of Kuwait for the last 26 years nor kept any contact with his friends or relatives in Kuwait remains as a mystery.

Very Sad to read the article. I dont think anyone can imagine what this person went through his life. Pray no one ever meets this fate.

I wounder if Mr. Naique was registered with the embassy of India and also if the Embassy is regularly updating relevant information of all Indians living in Kuwait. If not they should immediately start with the updating process and request all Indians to fill the form online.

Besides other personal data the foll info should also be included.
1) Name of Employer & Place of Work and Contact Nos.,
2) Local residential address in details and mobile No.
3) Home address in India and Contact Nos. of at least one or two Family member

The Embassy should invite all the Indian associations, who could help individuals to fill the forms and run a campaign so that the Embassy has all the relevant information on all Indians living in Kuwait.
