Singapore is considering compensating the family of the Indian citizen killed in a road accident.
Singapore: The labor ministry of Singapore is looking at compensation claims to the relatives of an Indian citizen who died in a road accident here. This Indian citizen died due to a vehicle collision while working on a road project. Salvam Variyah (33) resident of a village in Pudukottai district of Tamil Nadu was killed on December 22 last year during the repair of the road on the West Coast highway. That evening when the company was preparing to return after finishing the work, only a truck hit him while the road safety barrier was lifted. He died on the spot only.
According to the report of The Straits Times, if the Ministry issues notice in this regard, then the family of Variyah can get a Singapore Dollar from 69,000 to 204,000 in compensation, and this amount must be given to the insurance company within 21 days. The body of Variyah was sent to India on December 24. The police is now investigating this accident. They came to Singapore seven years ago and sent 2,000 Singapore dollars per month to their families and used to spend the education of three children in the village.
There are 52-year-old mother, 29-year-old widow and two younger sisters in the family of Variyah. All these people rely on them.
