Prathapan (62), who was running RPN, a wholesale and retail vegetable business in Puthenchantha, his wife Shirley (52), son Ahil (29), daughter-in-law Abhirami (24) and her eight-month-old baby Ryan were those dead. The condition of Prathapan’s second son Nihul (29), Abhirami’s husband continues to be serious.

The bodies of Prathapan and Shirley were found swollen due to heat. There was no discoloration or signs of burns on the skin of Abhirami and her baby. Meantime, Prathapan's eldest son Rahul and his family reached home from Gulf last night. The bodies will be cremated after some of their relatives come from abroad.
