Mathew George's Body Brought Home

KOCHI: The body of Mathew George, the charted accountant from Kochi who was killed during an attack by suspected Taliban militants outside a government guest house in Afghanistan on Wednesday night, was brought to Cochin International Airport on Friday night by an Air India flight from Delhi. After formal checks, the body was taken to the morgue of the Medical Trust Hospital in Kochi by a special ambulance.

The family members of George, including his wife Philomina, son Deepak, his brother Joseph George and other relatives were present at the airport to receive the body. According to family members, the body of the victim would be taken to his house at Kathrikkadavu near here on Saturday for his relatives to pay homage.

Later, the body would be taken back to the morgue on Saturday as his son, Vinod, who is settled in the US would reach only by Sunday morning. The funeral will be held at the Little Flower church cemetery at Elamkulam at Sunday afternoon.

George, who was working as an auditor with the government department in Afghanistan, was one among the four Indians killed in the Taliban attack. Another Delhi-based Malayali Martha Farel, director of a private NGO, was also killed in the attack. Though she belongs to Kollam in Kerala, her funeral will be held in Delhi as she was settled there, said the authorities.
