LONDON: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today personally conveyed his condolence to NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul, whose son Angad died a few days ago after falling from his penthouse in central London.
Prime Minister Modi, who had telephoned Lord Paul to offer his condolence immediately after the tragedy on Sunday, met Lord Paul at his hotel in London.
“He was very generous, unbelievably warm and kind,” Lord Paul said after meeting the Prime Minister at Taj St James’ Hotel in London, where PM Modi was staying during his three-day UK visit.
Top Indian leaders including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Union Ministers — Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh — and others have conveyed their condolence to Lord Paul.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Ministers Farooq and Omar Abdullah have also conveyed their grief.
Angad Paul’s cremation was held yesterday at the Golders Green electric crematorium where over 1,000 mourners offered their condolences to Lord Paul, his wife Aruna and Angad’s widow Michelle.
