In a heart-wrenching turn of events, Pradeep, father of 27-year-old Srihari, had to identify his son's remains through a tattoo on his hand, following a tragic fire in Kuwait that claimed 49 lives.

Pradeep recounted the ordeal, explaining that he was summoned by authorities to a hospital where the bodies were kept. He struggled to recognize his son due to severe burns and swelling, eventually identifying him by a distinctive tattoo. Srihari had returned to Kuwait from Kerala just a week before the tragedy.

Both father and son were employees of the same company. The fire, which broke out early Wednesday in a seven-storey building housing 195 migrant workers, led to massive casualties due to suffocation. Efforts are now focused on repatriating Srihari's body back to India amidst ongoing investigations by Kuwaiti authorities.
