Dozens from Madangir missing since January, were heading to New Zealand
| Tuesday | 16th April, 2019
While police estimate around 50 people are missing from a Madangir neighbourhood, residents have prepared a list of over 100.
They were among 200-odd people who went missing when a boat, Daya Mata 2 IND- KL-04/MM2676, which left from Kerala’s Munambam harbour for New Zealand in January this year, did not reach its destination.
Eight years ago, several families from a refugee community in south Delhi’s Madangir village migrated to Australia in search of jobs and better lives.
AdvertisingThe “tried and tested experiment” inspired other residents when a similar opportunity of settling down in New Zealand came by in December last year.
The plan to take people to New Zealand was formed when families of two people, who left for Australia in 2010, came back and told the others they could move to New Zealand.
