The Government will be looking at avenues for assistance to the family of the late Avinesh Ram, who died after an accident in the Vatukoula Gold Mines last week.
This was confirmed by Chief Government Whip Ashneel Sudhakar, who was also a former employer of Mr Ram’s widow Poonam Kohli.
“We from the Government side are here and have also brought my advisory councils to have a look at the family situation and if there is any assistance we can provide them,” Mr Sudhakar said.
“The Government will look at any way it can provide assistance through social welfare or the ministry.”
He said this was a very sad occasion for the family given that the couple have a young three-year-old son Abishai Ram.
