Distraught Urmila Devi says she never dreamt that one day her husband would not return home.

Early last Friday Ms Devi noticed that her husband,  Sunia Mateiwai, was not lying next to her.

Her 42-year-old husband had not returned home. She then sensed that something was not right.

Her fears were confirmed when she was officially told that Mr Mateiwai was found dead on a tramline in Labasa.

Circumstances surrounding his death are still a mystery. It is, however, alleged that Mr Mateiwai was run over by a locomotive.

Ms Devi said last Thursday they returned from shopping in town.

His friends came home where they were drinking alcohol.

She said at 10pm the same night Mr Mateiwai and his friends decided to go into town.

“He told me he was going out with his friends to Naqai Settlement to do something. He did not tell me what it was,” she said.

With teary eyes, Ms Devi said that night was the last time she saw him.

“He was a caring man, a loving husband, a man with a big heart. I just don’t know how come he ended up on the tramline dead,” she said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed the alleged incident.

Mr Matewai is survived by his wife and three children.
