Congolese murder: Govt assures to assist kins in receiving body


The government on Sunday assured that it will provide every help to the family of the Congolese national Masonda Ketada Olivier, who was beaten to death by three youths on May 20, to receive his mortal remains.

“In the unfortunate death of Masonda Olivier, the government will assist his family to travel to India to receive his mortal remains,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

Olivier, 29, was hacked to death by group of three men on May 20 after a brawl over the hiring of an auto-rickshaw in Vasant Kunj area. Two accused have been held while the third is on the run. Olivier arrived India on a student visa and had recently got himself a job as a teacher. In a separate tweet, Swarup said the government would “also arrange for his mortal remains to be transported to DR (Democratic Republic of) Congo at our expense”.
