Injured Indian woman tourist dies in air ambulance from Dubai

Dubai: An Indian woman tourist, who was fighting for her life after a crash in Dubai in which her husband died, did not survive her flight back home in an air ambulance on Monday.
Neetu Jain Kawad, 38, was flown to the South Indian city of Bengaluru in an air ambulance two weeks after she lost her husband, Dinesh Kawad, 40, in a collision between a minibus they were travelling in and a truck on Emirates Road on January 22.

“Unfortunately, Neetu couldn’t survive the flight and we have lost her even before emergency treatment could be given to her in India,” the family informed Rakesh Bohara, who assisted them in Dubai.
Bohara, general secretary of Rajasthan Business and Professional Group (RBPG) in Dubai, and Kesar Kothari, chairman of RBPG, were contacted by their acquaintance in Rajasthan after the couple met with the accident during their trip to Dubai.
Hailing from Rajasthan, the couple was settled in Bellary in Karnataka, running a garments business.
