The owner of one of Bur Dubai's oldest flower shops died last weekend due to 'gastroenteritis of presumed infectious nature'. He was 49.
The Indian national, Arun Damodar, fell ill on June 18 and died four days later, on Saturday, in a hospital in Dubai. Family members were in a state of shock as "everything happened so suddenly" and the reason behind his sickness remained unclear, they said.
"Prior to this disease, he did not have any health problem. Three years ago, he had a bout of pneumonia, but he was completely cured of it," a relative said. According to an official statement from the private hospital where Arun was admitted, he arrived at the facility with severe dehydration and acute renal failure on June 18, after reportedly experiencing severe diarrhoea and vomiting for three days.
