KOCHI: “Everyday, he used to call me before going for work. Since I was not home, Tuesday also he rang me up. But I never thought it would be his last call,” Mohammad Sheriff - father of M M Ramshad, a young engineer who died in the accident at CSL - was inconsolable at his home in Malippuram, near Vypeen.
For Sheriff, his wife Ramla and daughter Shanseera, the 21-year-old who worked as a contractor was everything. Their life depended on him. “Though he was a reserved person, he shared a healthy relationship with everyone. He always wanted to lead a simple life. I don’t know why this happened to him. We can’t think of a life without my son,” said Sheriff, choking with emotion. His body was laid to rest at the Hajeed Mosque cemetery at Malippuram on Tuesday.
According to Sheriff, who runs a ration store, Ramshad was an earnest individual. “Though his duty began at 8 in the morning, he used to come home late as he was committed to his professional responsibilities,” his father said. His body was laid to rest at the Hajeed Mosque cemetery at Malippuram on Tuesday.
