Prince Narula's cousin Rupesh Narula is no more. The 25-year-old who moved to Canada sometime back and got married only two months back died while celebrating Canada Day at Bluffers Park Beach at Scarborough, Toronto, on Monday.
Rupesh was with his friends when he was apparently washed away by the strong current. Unfortunately, he did not know how to swim properly.
"Rupesh had settled in the US. Uski shaadi sirf doh mahine pehle hui thi. He was only 25. Bhabhi was staying with us and her visa etc was being arranged. She would have joined him soon...," said Prince Narula, who's still trying to come to terms with the tragedy.
"Bhai was staying with a family in Toronto and they had ventured to a beach spot on Monday. That family went back home after some time, but Rupesh stayed back on the beach with a friend.
"The friend also left the beach to pull the car out from the parking lot and Rupesh told him 'tu chal, main bas aata hoon'," he said.
However, when Rupesh's friend was taking out the car from the parking, he heard a commotion 'doob gaya, doob gaya'. The friend immediately headed back inside and joined the search for Rupesh. However, they couldn't find him for almost 20 minutes, and when they did, he was no more.
Prince Narula's parents are getting the cousin's body, while Yuvika is with the deceased's wife. The funeral will be held in India.
"Mom and Dad have gone to bring my brother's body. Yuvika Chaudhary, (Prince's wife) is here with Bhabhi. Can't believe that Rupesh is gone," said an emotional Prince Narula.
