Sushma Swaraj orders probe into an Indian's death in Uganda
Deoria: Following intervention of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the Government of India has taken up a matter in which one Ashish Mishra, resident of Uttar Pradesh, died under mysterious circumstances while working in a company in Uganda.
A Tweet of one Dr Sandhya Rathore, an acquaintance of the deceased, prompted Ms Swaraj to ask the Indian mission in Uganda to send a detailed report on the death of Ashish who worked with Fabrication systems Uganda Kampala Ltd as welding inspector.
Apparently, he died in an accident but the tweet of Sandhya raised questions on his death alleging it looked like a murder. Taking cognizance of the tweet of Dr Sandhya, a teacher in Gujarat, the MEA, on the best of its minister, came in the motion and the mission in Uganda sent a report to the GoI, on the basis of which the further action is being mooted.
Meanwhile, the body of Ashish reached India on Thursday and was cremated at his native place in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh. The family members of Ashish have extended thanks to Sushma Swaraj for her prompt action taken in this regard.
