KOLLAM: A youth hailing from Perumpuzha here has gone missing from the ship that sailed from Egypt to Saudi Arabia last week, and his relatives have alleged foulplay.  Abhinand Yesudasan, 21,  was working as a pipe fitter in Aries Marine LLC in Sharjah  for the last three months and was on an official trip in the ship, ‘Berlioz,’   when he went missing on the midnight of March 21.     

Abhinand is the younger son of Yesudasan Anthony and Fancy Yesudasan of Jerusalam Cottage, Vanchimukku, Perumpuzha, Kollam. “We got a message from his parent company in Sharjah that he had gone missing on March 21. We spoke to him last on March 17 when he mentioned that his co-workers had tortured him mentally.  The ship authorities also had no idea of Abhinand. We suspect foul-play in this,” Abhinand’s elder brother Abhilash told DC.

 

The company  had informed that Abhinand was  missing after he went to the toilet in the ship. According to the authorities, the Egyptian Navy initiated a rescue operation, but could not trace Abhinand. They also allege that Abhinand was tortured in his room in the ship by his fellow travellers. The relatives have contacted the Sharjah police seeking their intervention as the ship  is expected to reach Khorfakkan port in Sharjah on March 29. The relatives have also complained to the external affairs ministry.
