UAE tourist dies in road accident

A tourist from the United Arab Emirates died after he crashed with a scooter on the Sinquerim-Candolim road on Sunday at around 5pm.

Shaikh Khaled Sultan Alquassini, 46, was riding a non-geared two wheeler in a rash and negligent manner, said the Calangute police.

He was coming from the Taj towards Candolim when he dashed against a roadside signboard at the Sinquerim junction, as a result of which he fell and sustained serious head injuries. He was rushed to the nearby primary health centre in Candolim where he succumbed to his injuries soon after. His body has been preserved at the Goa Medical College and hospital morgue in Bambolim.

The body is expected to be taken back to the UAE by his relatives. [TOI]
