Report by: P.A.HameedPadubidri, Saudi Arabia

Dammam, Sep 14: Adam Shaikh Razak, aged about 52, died last week due to the severe heart attack while he was on duty. He has been working at Bakery division as a Driver-cum-Salesman at Saudi Catering & Contracting Company in Rakah-Dammam, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since more than 25 years. It is said that he was sincere and efficient in his duty in the Company throughout his tenure of employment. It was informed to Daijiworld by one of his co-workers in the Company that when he was on duty in Riyadh and was driving his van, he felt severe pain on his chest; he then parked his vehicle near to a Shop in Riyadh, where he breathed his last within few minutes of parking of his vehicle. Soon the police arrived to the spot upon the information made by the shopkeeper and the dead body was taken in Ambulance. Now the corpse has been kept in Somaishi Hospital in Riyadh, awaiting the legal and official formalities.   

The authorization letter from his wife, Mrs. Naseema in India, was already received by the deceased brother, Azad Adam Hussain, who is working in Jeddah, to whom the authorization was given, to collect and bury the remains in the Kingdom. Now it is pending for obtaining all the necessary approvals and permission from his Company and the concerned Saudi authorities. 

Adam originally hails from Permude in Padil House near Bajpe in Mangalore District. He is having wife and minor children, who are now destitute due to his sudden demise in the Kingdom. 

Indian Fraternity Forum Riyadh Unit of Karnataka Chapter head Naushad Rasheed, who is working with full of bustles in this regard, told Daijiworld that their Forum has been working relentlessly for getting all the necessary requirements and approvals from the Saudi authorities and Indian Embassy; he told we are trying our best to obtain the dead body within two days before the Eid holidays and to get the cadaver buried as his bereaved family back in India is under utter shock and melancholy.
