Indian dead body found in Turkish
The body of an Indian national has been recovered from the debris that was being buried in earthquake-hit areas in Turkey. When the deceased was identified, it was found that he was a resident of Kotdwar in Pauri district of Uttarakhand. And his name is Vijay Kumar.
He had gone to Turkey last month on business but there was no news at home since February 6. The Indian Embassy in the limelight confirmed on Saturday that Vijay Kumar had been cut off from India since the earthquake on February 6.
This meant that he was killed in the earthquake on February 6 itself. Only a few pieces of Vijay Kumar’s body have been recovered. His body was found under the debris of a hotel in Turkish . His body will be brought to India as soon as possible.
After this incident, Vijay’s family had no contact with him and he was very upset. Vijay’s relative Gaurav Kala told that we have got his luggage and passport written in the information yesterday, but no dead body has been found. Have to say that we were praying for his safety.
I got a call from the embassy that a dead body has been recovered from there, if you tell us any mark to confirm it, then we told about a mark on Vijay’s left hand. After this, the embassy confirmed that this body is of Vijay Kumar only.
He used to work in this company in Bangalore and went to Turkish on 22nd January and was supposed to return on 20th February.
