Lal’s wife, Padma Lal, was also prohibited from returning to Fiji; however, late last month, Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka revoked the prohibition order on her, allowing her to return her late husband’s ashes to Fiji.

An event has been organized at Tabia Sanatan College on February 25th where final respects will be paid to the late Brij La before his ashes are interred.
