The victim was identified as Rajesh Muraleedharan (23) from Puthoor near Kottarakkara town in Kollam district of Kerala.

According to information received by his relatives on Saturday, Rajesh died on May 9 in a hospital where he was admitted with bullet injuries after he was fired at by a gang that broke into the rented house he was living in.

Rajesh, working as quality inspector of a private cashew factory in Kollam, had gone to Ghana in January for purchasing raw nuts for the factory, sources said.

There were also some other Keralites staying with him, who informed Rajesh's family of the incident. His relatives, however, could not say in which place in Ghana their kin was living when he was attacked.

Earlier this month, the CEO of a Kochi-based shipping company was shot dead by robbers in South Sudan.
