Two Keralites Killed In Car Accident In England

Two Keralites were killed in a car crash at Cheltenham town in Gloucester, England. The deceased are Bins Rajan, 32, of Kunnaykal in Muvattupuzha, Ernakulam and Archana Nirmal from Kollam.   

Three family members of the deceased have been injured, including Bins’ wife Anagha, their two-year-old child and Archana’s husband, Nirmal Ramesh, who hails from Vallachira in Pathanamthitta.  

Anagha and their child have been admitted to Oxford NHS Hospital. The condition of the child is reportedly very critical.  

On Monday at 11.15 am, the accident occurred on A – 436 Road in Pegglesworth, Cheltenham. The car they were travelling in collided with a lorry. Traffic on both sides of the road was disrupted for hours following the accident.  

Both Archana and Anagha were students at Luton University. Bins Rajan, Anagha and their child arrived in the UK in August last year.  

According to reports, Archana worked for the Malayalee Nursing Care Agency in Luton along with her studies. Last September, they arrived in the UK and started attending university classes in October.  

When they met with the accident, all were travelling to Oxford to visit a friend.  

Bins Rajan died on the spot. Archana was rushed to Bristol Hospital, but her life could not be saved. The Gloucestershire Constabulary has not released further details.  

Leaders of UK Malayalee organizations are in touch with relatives to repatriate the bodies.  

Union of UK Malayalee Association (UUKMA) and Luton Keralites’ Association have initiated a fund-raising campaign to repatriate the mortal remaining of the deceased.
