Ten minutes before he was to leave strife-torn Libya, an Indian worker was shot dead by Islamic militants in Tripoli on Sunday. The victim was identified as Saloman Daniel, 59, a native of Palamel in Kerala’s Alappuzha district.
Family sources said Daniel has been working as a turner in a company for 10 years. As the battle intensified, the company had asked its staff to move out of Libya.
“My father had called just 10 minutes before the tragedy. He told us that he would reach Thiruvananthapuram airport on Wednesday noon. As there were no direct flights, he was coming via Jordan. He was shot minutes before he was to board a bus to Tunisia border,” said the victim’s son Shaiju.
The family was informed about the tragedy by the colleagues of Daniel, who had come to Kerala on leave two months ago. He used to visit his family once in every couple of years.
Daniel would have stayed in Libya but for the directive from his employer to leave the country in the wake of the civil war.
