Kuwait City: A special Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft carrying the mortal remains of 45 Indian victims who perished in a tragic fire incident in Kuwait arrived in Kochi on Friday.

The fire, which occurred on Wednesday, has claimed the lives of 23 residents of Kerala among the 45 Indian fatalities, causing shockwaves through communities in both Kuwait and India.

The detailed breakdown of the victims highlights the extent of the tragedy: 7 from Tamil Nadu, 3 from Andhra Pradesh, and 1 each from Bihar, Odisha, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Haryana, Punjab, and West Bengal, in addition to the 23 from Kerala.
