Muscat: The body of the student who committed suicide by jumping from the roof of her apartment building last Saturday, 8 February, was repatriated back to India at 11 o’clock on Tuesday night, so that her last rites can be performed.

The girl had been studying at Indian School Al Wadi Al Kabir, and had recently completed her term exams.

All administrative procedures in Oman had been completed with the help of friends of the girl's family, as well as officials from the Indian Embassy in Muscat.

"The girl's family were very set that her last rites would happen only in India, and for this reason, the Royal Oman Police were very helpful in completing all of the procedures quickly," said Dr Manu Suseel, a close family friend, who was helping with the formalities.

An embassy official said: “The family of the girl did come to us yesterday to request the no objection certificate which is required for the repatriation, and it was issued immediately.”
