Neetu Jain Kawad, 38, died on Monday while being flown to Bengaluru in an air ambulance, two weeks after she lost her husband Dinesh Kawad, 40, in a tragic accident on Emirates Road on January 22.

Neetu had suffered serious injuries in the accident. She had slipped into coma and was treated at a hospital in Dubai, Khaleej Times reported. The couple hailed from Bengaluru and was on a vacation here when their minibus collided with a truck near Al Aweer area, it said. The deceased have a garments business in India and had left behind their 11-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter with grandparents before coming to Dubai on a leisure trip.
