Kenyan national Kiare Michael Chage, who was a victim of the shoot out in Sudan in which a Malayali was also killed, is undergoing follow up treatment at a city hospital. Chage was reportedly brought to Kerala by his employer LOTS Shipping, which is a Kochi-based shipping company.
Ranjith T Nelluvalli, the CEO of LOTS Shipping, was on a business trip to Sudan in the first week of May, when he was killed in a shoot out. Chage was driving the car in which Ranjith was travelling, when miscreants stopped them and opened fire.
Chage survived but lost his left eye in the attack. His life could be saved reportedly because the bullet did not injure his brain.
Hospital authorities confirmed that he was brought for further treatment for gun shot wounds. “Since he has suffered injuries on face, he will undergo plastic surgery”, hospital authorities said. He was brought Kochi after treatment in his home country for a month.
Ranjith had gone to Sudan in connection with a project related to the maintenance of three barges there. He was scheduled to return to Kerala by the end of May.
