The body of B Aravind (27), a newly married man from Chennai who died in a paragliding accident in Kullu Manali in Himachal Pradesh while honeymooning, reached the city on Tuesday night.
His parents have urged the Tamil Nadu Government to give solatium to his wife Preethi. Aravind was with a pharmaceutical company in Chennai while his wife is working in a city branch of Canara Bank. They got married on Nov 10.
The accident happened when they were honeymooning in Kullu Manali. Revathi went parasailing first and returned safely. Aravind who took the next flight fell into a gorge after his safety belt gave way.
The glider also crashed. Pilot Haru Ram who escaped with injuries has since died in hospital.
