“We have completed all the procedures to send the body back to his homeland and most probably it will be repatriated on Wednesday night,” the official told the Times of Oman.
“The body will be sent to India as per the availability of cargo on Wednesday,” a social worker said.
The 50-year old Satyan Kesavan was found dead in his apartment in Muttrah last Tuesday by one of his flatmates.
The primary investigations showed that robbery was the motive behind the murder, according to the Royal Oman Police (ROP).
The ROP had detained Satyan’s flatmates and two Bangladeshi colleagues for questioning but they were released later.
Satyan was working as a Foreman in a company which was outsourced by the Oman Flour Mill to supply goods.
According to the sources in the flour mill, Satyan used to collect cash for his company. Satyan is survived by his wife Praseeda and their only daughter Swati.
Swati was attending coaching classes in Bangalore, Karnataka, to appear for her Master in Technology entrance examinations.
