New Delhi | Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy today called on Dr Abin Suri who survived the devastating earthquake in Nepal and is recuperating at AIIMS here. According to hospital sources, Chandy visited the hospital at 5.30 PM and interacted with Suri for about 15 minutes.
It may be recalled that a pleasure trip to Nepal by three young doctors from Kerala turned tragic with two of them losing their lives in the killer quake and another managing to survive with serious injuries last month. While Dr Deepak Thomas from Kannur and Dr A S Irshad from Kasaragod were killed in the earthquake, Dr Suri, who was also part of the group, managed to escape with injuries.
The three doctors, working at National Rural Health Mission programme at Mananthavady in Waynad district, had gone to Kathmandu for an excursion in April.
