Dubai, Jan 9: Bodies of the Indian father and son duo who were drowned in the sea Sunday evening at Khor Khowair area, 40km from Ras Al Khaimahhave have yet not been recovered.
Mohammed Sanu, 30, who was apparently suffering from the pangs of separation from his wife, took the extreme step of ending his life after his father, Mohammed Abdul Rasheed, 60, refused to allow him to go back to Kerala to live with his wife, Khaleej Times reported. A relative of the deceased said that the father was making arrangements to bring his daughter-in-law to the UAE to live with them. ''But Sanu could not overcome his depression,'' said a relative. On sunday evening he went far into the sea. When his father tried to save him, both of them were swept away by powerful waves.
Police divers were continuing their efforts yesterday to locate the bodies, but in vain. Lt-Col. Sulaiman Al Kidhi, Chief of Al Rams Police Station told Khaleej Times that ''the divers were being assisted by a helicopter in the search.''
