Chennai: As many as seven persons hailing from different parts of Tamil Nadu are among those killed in the Kuwait inferno, officials in Chennai said on Thursday evening.

Confirming that seven persons from the State had perished in the blaze in which claimed the lives of over 40 Indians, an official dealing with the issue, said efforts are on to bring back the mortal remains of the Tamils to India.

Relatives of the deceased have also approached the respective District Collectorates appealing for help to bring back their mortal remains to their villages.
