According to the Gulf News, a close friend of an Indian expatriate found dead along with his wife here last week said he had not known of his friend’s job loss or of any other turmoil in the couple’s life. “I spoke to [Janardhanan Pattiery] last week, but nothing seemed amiss then. In fact, we are all very shocked and saddened. I had known [Pattiery] since childhood, and this is a big loss,” the friend, who declined to be named narrated the story to Gulf News.

The news of their demise came into the light when their son tried contacting his parents and found their phones switched off. “Their phones had been switched off and the son, who is employed in Bengaluru, could not contact them. Based on the couple’s son’s request, police broke open the door and found them dead,” he had said.

The cause of the death is not yet known as the investigation is underway but in the meanwhile a social worker is taking all the efforts to repatriate the mortal remains back to their native place in India.
