MoS Kirti Vardhan Singh from Gonda, instrumental in expediting the repatriation process

New Delhi: An Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft touched down in Kochi from Kuwait on Friday morning, bearing the mortal remains of 45 Indian nationals who lost their lives in a recent fire incident. MoS Kirti Vardhan Singh, instrumental in expediting the repatriation process, was also onboard the flight, collaborating closely with Kuwaiti authorities. Singh attributed the swift identification of the victims and the seamless process to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership.
"The moment our government got to know that this incident had taken place, PM Modi immediately convened a meeting and instructed us to reach Kuwait immediately and take all possible steps so that the mortal remains could be brought back as soon as possible. We reached Kuwait and PM Modi had already spoken to the authorities there, to the foreign minister there and to the Emir of Kuwait," he said.
"I would like to thank to the authorities as they did everything possible, they took all possible measures and fully cooperated in having all the papers completed, identification was done in such a short time because normally this could have taken a week or at least ten days. On PM Modi's instructions, the authorities were very quick about it..." Singh told the reporters at the airport.
An IAF C-130J transport aircraft was dispatched to Kuwait on Thursday night to retrieve the bodies of the victims. The Indian embassy reported that out of the 45 individuals who lost their lives in the fire, 23 hailed from Kerala, seven from Tamil Nadu, three each from Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, two from Odisha, and one each from Bihar, Punjab, Karnataka, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Haryana.
Upon completion of DNA tests conducted by Kuwaiti authorities for identification purposes, the mortal remains were entrusted to the respective state government representatives in Kochi and Delhi. Earlier statements from MoS Singh indicated that some bodies had suffered severe damage, hindering visual identification.
The cause of the fire was attributed to an electrical circuit malfunction, as reported. Kuwaiti authorities confirmed the identities of 45 Indian victims and three Filipino nationals who perished in the incident.
