Manirekha Poonja, who worked in the Gulf News's finance department, was going on a short trip to Mangalore with her husband and 17-year-old daughter for her cousin's wedding, Gulf News reported.
"She (Poonja) boarded the flight last night. Today (Saturday), when we heard the crash news, we got in touch with our relative in Mangalore. Her name is not among the survivors," the family member said.
Poonja's daughter Harshini was a student of media and communications.
