Hyderabad: Three of the people killed in the devastating fire that broke out in a building housing migrant workers in Kuwait's Mangaf area have been identified as residents of Andhra Pradesh. The Andhra Pradesh Non-Resident Telugu (APNRT) society is making efforts to identify the bodies and bring them to the family members.

The deceased from Andhra Pradesh were identified as Thamada Lokanadham (31), from Jankibhadhra village in Sompeta mandal in Srikakulam district, Eswar Meesala (45) from Annavarappadu village and Molleti Satyanarayana (45) who hailed from Kandavalli village. Both Eswar and Satyanarayana belonged to the East Godavari district.

Lokanadham's family members said he worked as a helper to the rolling operator in NBTC. He had just returned to Kuwait on Tuesday after a holiday. A few days ago, Lokanadham took a break from work and visited India to participate in a village festival.

After his participation in the village festivals and exercising his voting rights, Lokanadham arrived in Kuwait to resume his duties only on Tuesday. Upon his return to Kuwait, he went to the camp for a night's rest, but unfortunately, died in the fire mishap before he could resume his duties.

Due to the high cost of flight tickets, Eswar had to postpone his planned visit to India on Monday. It is learnt that Eswar's daughter's marriage had been fixed and he wanted to visit home to discuss other issues. Due to high ticket prices, he postponed his trip by four days. He tragically lost his life in the fire accident. Back home his family members were expecting that he would be back in four days. He has been working as a salesperson at a supermarket in Kuwait for the last 10 years.

Satyanarayana has a school-going boy, and his parents are agricultural labourers. He has been working in Kuwait for the last ten years. The family was shocked by Satyanaryana's death.

There were three other migrant workers hailing from Telangana who escaped the fire by jumping off the building.
