Mumbai, May 22: The Mangalore air crash bought a double blow for the 24-year-old Saudi-based businessman Sameer A Shaikh.
He just lost his grandmother few days back and was on his way to attend her funeral in Mangalore.
"I flew into Mumbai from Saudi Arabia yesterday and was scheduled to catch a Jet Airways flight to Mangalore this morning as I could not get a connecting flight from there," he told while talking to the Media.
Sameer lost 16 of his relatives who were coming to attend his grandmother's funeral. Sameer lost his maternal uncle, his wife and two children, besides 12 distant relatives.
Distraught over this heart wrenching tragedy he said, "I have been waiting here since morning and there is nobody to inform me about when the flight will depart. Several other overtaxed people who look as if they just ran the marathon are waiting like me for information about the flight to Mangalore, but there is no one to give us the correct information,".
