The death of Naval official Abeesh T Shivan, 32, at Vishakhapattanam came as a shock to the residents of Okkal, near Perumbavoor.

The relatives said that they were devastated when they were informed about Abeesh’s death by a Naval official at Vishakhapattanam over phone.

Abeesh had recently come home and spent some days with his family last month. They ruled out any possibility of suicide and said that the death was suspicious in nature. Abheesh is the son of Okkal SNDP branch president T D Shivan and former teacher of Okkal Sreenarayana Higher Secondary School. He is survived by wife Lekha and son Aryan. Abheesh’s brother Ajish will reach Vishakapatnam to receive the body and bring it to Okkal. On Sunday, the bodies of Abheesh and Cherian K Josh, both naval employees, were found dead on the railway track under mysterious conditions near Pinagadi Railway Station at Pendurthi in Visakhapatnam district. Association of Keralites President N M Pillai alleged that the death of the two naval employees are a clear case of murder.

“We have informed our stand to the police and have demanded a thorough probe into the matter. We have taken steps to ensure that the body will reach Kerala immediately after the postmortem examination is completed,” he said.
