Abu Dhabi: Indian Embassy in UAE completed formalities on Thursday for repatriation of mortal remains of two Indians dead in Abu Dhabi blast.

“@IndembAbuDhabi completed all formalities for repatriation of mortal remains of 2 Indians deceased in Jan 17 incident. Remains reach Amritsar tomorrow morning.

Highly appreciate the fullest support extended by Govt of UAE & @AdnocGroup . Tied up with Punjab Govt for local support,” tweeted Sanjay Sudhir, Indian Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates.

Earlier, External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar expressed solidarity with the UAE in face of such “unacceptable” acts in a phone call with Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. UAE on Monday condemned the Houthi attack in the capital Abu Dhabi that killed three civilians, including two Indians.

Earlier in the blast two Indians and a Pakistani national were killed and six others injured in a suspected Houthi drone attack near the Abu Dhabi airport that sparked multiple explosions in the United Arab Emirates’ capital.

The explosions were caused by “small flying objects”, possibly drones, that hit three petroleum tankers in Abu Dhabi, police said. Another minor fire broke out in the new construction area of the Abu Dhabi International Airport, according to the state-run Emirates News Agency (WAM).
