Since their deaths, the bodies of the two men are lying in a Riyadh mortuary as their employers are not willing to bear the cost of transporting them to their families back in India, the Saudi Gazette reported.
According to the report, Jaswinder Singh, 56 from Kapurthala in Punjab and Ponnam Satyanarayana, 48, from Telanana's Jagtial district, were left unemployed and were waiting for their end of service benefits from their employers.
Both of them were planning to return to India for good after that.
After their deaths, however, the construction company was not ready to bear the embalming and cargo charges.
As per rules, it is the employer's responsibility to bear the cost of transporting the mortal remains of an employee and also to make the exit papers. The International Air Transport Association or IATA rules make it mandatory for the coffin box to be chemically embalmed.
