Thiruvananthapuram | A Keralite, who reportedly went missing in Kuwait, has been located and will be repatriated soon, according to the External Affairs Ministry.

In a letter to Rajya Sabha member and NDA Kerala vice-chairman Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar has said the missing Keralite, Ani Sathyanesan, has been located and accommodated at a shelter of the Indian mission in Kuwait.

He will be repatriated as soon as the immigration formalities are completed and the emergency certificate and travel documents are issued to him by the mission, said Akbar.

Sathyanesan, hailing from nearby Parassala, had gone to Kuwait in 2013 to work as a driver.

Subsequently, he was allowed to come home only once and his sponsor did not even let him return to Kerala for treatment after he fell ill.

His mother wrote to Chandrasekhar seeking help to trace her son and the letter was forwarded to the External Affairs Ministry.
