Dubai: Palakkad native Samad abandoned his family in Dubai in 2007 after his wife gave birth to a fourth girl child. Samad had earlier said that he would only obtain passports for his children if she gave birth to a boy. Without a passport or any documents to their name, his daughters are unable to leave their country and are scared to venture out of the single-room home.
The children wish that they had an Indian passport and could leave Dubai. However, as per regulations, this is only possible if Samad returns to Dubai the or if he sends a letter from Kerala requesting authorities to grant his daughters an Indian passport by stating that he is unable to travel to Dubai.
