Elderly lady from Udupi on way to India goes missing at Kuwait airport


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (SB)

Udupi, Sep 15: A 63-old-woman from Udupi went missing from Kuwait International Airport on Saturday, September 13.

According to family sources, the woman reached the airport in the evening and completed all formalities of boarding and her visa. She was supposed to catch an Indigo flight to Bengaluru.

It is learnt that after getting a boarding pass she sent a voice message to her relatives in India in which she stated that she would complete the immigration process soon. Thereafter she did not respond to any of the messages or calls over the phone.

When the relatives enquired with the airline, they came to know she had not boarded the flight.

"Her mobile phone still rings. But there is no answer. We do not know what happened to her at the airport. She did not have any major health issues. For the last 28 years she has been working in Kuwait as a housemaid. A few months back she wanted to leave her job and settle in India. After finalizing all legal procedures of cancellation of her visa, she arrived at the airport to fly to India. But suddenly she went missing and we still do not know what happened to her," said her relative.

When daijiworld contacted a few social work volunteers in Kuwait, they said, "We received news of the Indian woman missing from the airport. We are trying to find out what happened to her. We are in touch with the local police and officials here, and they are very helpful. Hope we will get a clear picture of what happened to her."

    As per report the Airlines came to know about her missing only when relatives enquired? That means they did not notice when the plan took off? Looks something fishy

    It is a mystery that the 63-year-old has gone missing at Kuwait International Airport after completing all her boarding formalities. She must have travelled many times as she worked in Kuwait for 28 years. I am sure she will be found out soon.

    One reason for someone to disappear after entering an airport in the GCC is if the police have taken the person in custody for some questioning.

    In some countries of the region, the police do not announce if they have taken someone in custody.

    Hopefully the person is safe.

    Cynthi,

    Kuwait Immigration has a travel ban list, people who are not allowed to travel due to various reasons like court cases pending etc.

    Also it’s common Police enter innocents name by mistake in this list, then it takes weeks to remove their names from this list.

    If she carries the mobile, it’s not difficult to trace her, but Police don’t take these cases seriously.

    Hope they will trace her soon , and this will be a happy ending.

    ...Tak...Takk...
