Agra: 15 days in a Chinese morgue, Aman Anand's body finally arrives home

Aman's family received the news of his death on July 1 and since then, they were making efforts to get his body shipped back to India.

The body of 24-year-old Aman Shashi Anand on Thursday arrived at his house in Agra after a delay of 16-17 days, having been stuck in Macao in China due to the administrative formalities. The family reportedly had to pay several lakhs to get the body released from China.

Dinesh Upadhyay, the father of deceased, told IndiaToday.in that, his son left India in search of a job in China. There, he died after drowning in a pond in Macao. Aman's family received the news of his death on July 1 and since then, they were making efforts to get his body shipped back to India.

However, the body arrived only after over two weeks' delay. Aman's sister Aditi said that the family received a lot of assistance from Aruna Jha, an NRI living in Macao, who got all the formalities of the body's transportation to India completed.

Social activist Vijay Upadhyay, who was in constant contact with the Indian Mission in Hong Kong over this matter, said that the Indian Mission was quite responsive in their replies after July 11.

The replies of the mission were detailed and forthcoming, but bureaucratic in nature with no real footwork visible on the part of the government, Vijay Upadhyay said.
