Baggage / Damage and loss
This is to report that I was travelling on the Emirates flight EK506 from Dubai to Mumbai on 11th September 2008. I had taken my return flight from New York and there was a stopover at Dubai.
On reaching Mumbai I was informed that one of my bags was held up in Dubai and would come to Mumbai by a later flight. I was returning to Mumbai on Emergency basis as my Father was very serious and after filing a report at Mumbai Airport for my bag I was informed that one of my relative was waiting for me. I realised that there must be some bad news and with tears in my eyes I left Mumbai Airport. I had reached directly for my Fathers funeral and although my bag was received at home by me on the next day I did not bother to open my bag as I was grieving my Father's death.
After three (3) days I decided to open my bag and in addition to my grief was shocked to find the contents of my bag spilling out and my bag was slit from the bottom and there was a long cut on the side. As i was still very grieved and too shocked to do anything I left the bag as it is. After about 5 days I unpacked my bag and found several items missing.
I request you to help me recover the loss that I suffered from the missing items in my bag. It was very hurtful as there were items which I had bought for my aged parents.
I got delayed in sending the email as I am still in mourning.
Will appreciate your help in this matter. I request you to consider that there are sentiments attached to the things purchased and it is very painful to find them missing.
