An NRI worker nearly spent three decades outside the country and has not visited his family or has come to his country back home for almost three decades and has died in tragic circumstances in Kuwait.
Akanuri Bhoomaih of Darpally mandal in the district of Nizamabad has been working as a laundry cleaner in Kuwait for the past twenty- seven years and had neither paid a visit to India nor had seen his family all along these years.
The Telangana NRI, Akanuri Bhoomaih is identified to be a father of three that comprised of a son and two daughters. The sources from the family say that the NRI had ignored his children as well as his family who were staying back in India for all the twenty- seven years that he had been working as a laundry cleaner in Kuwait.
It has also been said that Suresh who is the son of the Telangana NRI had left for Dubai when he was a young boy in order to work and support his family aiming to perform the marriages of his two elder sisters and that Suresh had returned home to India after he had worked in Dubai for some time.
“My father hardly enquired about us. However, he used to call rarely but whenever we asked him to return home or send money, he was simply disconnecting the phone”, said Suresh.
The health condition of Bhoomaiah has gradually failed and a group of NRIs in Kuwait called on him as they got to know about the failing of his health and had assured their support to him and had also advised him to return home.
However, Bhoomaih had died the next day of the NRIs in Kuwait had visited him.
The time has been consumed in order to obtain the clearance for sending the body of Bhoomaih to his home town as his Iqama was found to be expired. Few Telangana laborers in Kuwait had donated and collected the money in order to get the repatriation of the body of Bhoomaih.
The Telangana NRI wing of GAD had provided free transportation of the body of Bhoomaih to his native village from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.
