Missing US NRI student's body found in River
Report dated 26/04/2013 @ 1:36 PM

Missing US NRI student's body found in River US NRI student Sunil Tripathi, 22, who has been missing since March 16, has been found dead in the Providence River, Rhode Island.

No signs of trauma were initially found and police say the Brown University student who was last seen on March 16 left his cell phone ID and wallet in his room where he was last seen by his roommate.

The grief stricken Tripathi family expressed gratitude to all those who helped in their search operation over the months. Sunil's father Akhil Tripathi is a successful entrepreneur born and raised in Kanpur, who now lives and runs a software company in Pennsylvania.

Sadly, at one stage Sunil's resemblance to the younger brother involved in the Boston bombing, gave the family more grief, when they were subjected to suspicion of being involved.

Now the tired sad family ask only for privacy and time to mourn the death of their beloved son.

The cause of death is pending further investigation which could take several months according to Dara Chadwick a spokesperson for the state Health Department.

The court cited a Supreme Court judgement in which is held that a divorce decree granted by a foreign court is not valid in India as the grounds are not recognised by Indian law.

As such a claim of a UK NRI that the Ilford county court had in 2011 already granted divorce and the trial court in India should drop the divorce proceedings against him made by his wife's plea for the dissolution of marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act. Both parties are Indians and were married in Delhi according to Hindu rites. The court also rejected the husband's argument that the UK court made the decree 'absolute' on the grounds of 'irretrievable breakdown of the marriage' and his wife was informed about the proceeding there.

Beside, other complaints against her husband and in-laws under various laws including the Domestic Violence Act, the woman had filed a divorce petition in Delhi in Feb 2011.
