Sailesh Sharma 47, is still coming to grips with the loss of his brother Abinesh Sharma, 44, who died on Sunday.

Talking about their shared Sunday lunches, a traditional they’ve held onto since childhood, Mr Sharma asked, “Who will I eat my Sunday lunch with now?”

The pair shared their final Sunday lunch together not long before the fatal event.

“I did not know that it was our last conversation and lunch just an hour ago before the incident,” he said.

“I did not know that it would be the last time I would see him. I did not even say goodbye properly.”

Abinesh Sharma was killed in an accident along the Queens Road at Olosara, Sigatoka.

He was the Director of the Star Creation – his apparel business – based at Sigatoka town.

He was alone, driving a private van when the incident on Sunday occurred.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the victim’s van was travelling towards Korotogo and collided with a military bus conveying medical officers to Nadi.

“He allegedly lost control causing it to veer onto the opposite lane resulting in the accident.

The victim died at the scene while the Military officers were rushed to the Sigatoka Hospital for treatment,” she said.

Abinesh Sharma is survived by his wife Roshni, two children and his brother.

Olosara advisory councilor Arvin Mestry said, “It is sad to hear the news.

The community is mourning of the pillars of the area and stakeholders at the township of Sigatoka.”

Police investigations continue with the post mortem expected today.

The funeral will be held on Thursday at the Sigatoka crematorium at 1pm.
