Wife & Daughter Grieves Loss of Loved Ones In Nasinu Fire
“I have lost everything.”
Those were the only words Hans Wati could utter as she gestured her hands in despair.
She was lamenting that she had just been made a widow by a fire that killed her husband, Jai Narayan, 55, daughter Uleshni Irene Lata, 28, and granddaughter Prishika Devi, 10, at Navosai, Nasinu, between Suva and Nausori. Recently-wed couple, Faria Ali and Imran Ali also died in the fire.
Mrs Wati and another daughter, Jotishma Neelam, 19, escaped. She was unhurt but Jotishma suffered injuries to her hands.
Jotishma said “This is a horrible day for us. Everything happened so suddenly. We did not know what to do.”
“I was sleeping with my mother in the room,” she said.
