Udupi: Grieving family still waiting for mortal remains of Hazel Mathias

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (DC)

Udupi, Aug 16: Even after 27 days, the bereaved family members are waiting to receive the mortal remains of Hazel Jyotsna Mathias, a Shirva-based nurse, who died under mysterious circumstances in Saudi Arabia.

Hazel was working in Al Miqua General Hospital run by health ministry of Saudi Arabia for the last 6 years.

Hazel is the daughter of Robert Quadros and Helen Quadros couple from Agar Dande in Kuthyaru. She was married to Ashwin Mathias, a resident of Daddu in Baggathota road, Kuthyaru.

The grieving parents of Hazel, her husband and family members, who were hoping to receive her mortal remains, are still waiting to perform the final rites but the delay is an agonising one.

The accused, a resident of Saudi Arabia who is reportedly responsible for Hazel's death, has been taken into police custody. The investigation report has been submitted to the court and a copy of the same to Indian Embassy.

The mortal remains will be sent to India after the report gets approval.

The family members have expressed displeasure against the central government's failure to question the Saudi government and demand immediate action to recover the body and punish the culprit.

    Initially Hazel's death was under mysterious circumstances then it became sucide. She suicided herself on 19th November and the news came in the media on July 27, why it has come in the media after 6 days. Her co-worker, informed the family about her death. Till date no social media sharing her death news other than news papers. She talked to her father, brother and husband cheerfully on the day of suicide. If any Saudi national harassed her , then why she did not share her problem with her husband or parents or her friends or her superiors. Why she took the decision immediately after talking to her husband. Local men working in KSA as a Admin Staff. In KSA, expartite females are allowed to work in hospitals and as house maids only. If she is being harassed, then why she went on vacation in Jun 2018, and she planned to visit again in August, instead she should have resigned the job. There is some mystery behind her Suicide

    What's the use of Modi's visits for foreign trips if these kind of issues cannot be sorted out? It means Modi is travelling just as pleasure trips before he finishes his term of 5 years. Sad for this family and hope our government wakes up now at least from deep sleep. Sad to note that our government works only for rich and influential persons. Sridevi's case is best example.

    to boost BJP's fortunes. For hundreds of years the Indians have toiled hard to send foreign exchange. Exports drop from India, Value of Rupee drops ... but never ever the Foreign Exchange from expats has dropped. We have to pay the price for being patriotic; even when we die in a foreign land our Ministers will have foreign trip on chartered flights.

    Hazel's case should be handed over to the International Court of Justice.

    Saudi Arabian Police are useless and not favourable to Asians.

    The Indian Embassies officials are corrupt and powerless.

    Where is the Foreign Minister, Is she still in the hospital???!!!

    Embassy officials are inactive due to absence of orders from New Delhi. The local people need to activate the elected representatives first.

    Elected Representatives are either sleeping and snoring or they spread the umbrella over there own heads even if there is no rain also.

    Nalin Kumar Kateel is a useless guy.
    Shoba Karandlaje is roaming with a pistol.
    VedaVyasa Kamath win by default

    They couldn't use EVM force in Ullal because of Muslims majority. To protect direct EVM's involvement the fundamentals and communal BJP associates knowingly stopped E.C catching the BJP immediately. Although the E.C. is also a puppet of BJP.
