HYDERABAD: It took four months for the body of an Indian worker from Telangana who died in Saudi Arabia to be sent home.
The body of Vontari Narsa Reddy was taken to his native place in Sirnapally village of Indalwai mandal where his last rites were performed.
Telangana Jagruthi Saudi Arabia president Moazzam Ali Iftekar said that the matter was pursued with the Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia.
TOI had on February 9 published a report about the family waiting for the body for over 3 months.
“We have completed the formalities that were required from our side for repatriation of the body,” the employers told Ifetkar a few days ago. The Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia made arrangements to send the body to India.
Iftekar said Narsa Reddy died in a mishap. A municipal vehicle which was being driven by a Pakistani national working for the municipality accidentally ran over Narsa Reddy.
Vontaru Laxmi, the wife of Narsa Reddy, had earlier approached the high court seeking the court’s intervention in bringing her husband’s body home.
A writ was filed on her behalf by human rights activist P Shashi Kiran on February 4.
Swadesh Parikipandala, president of PMLU, also took up the matter with the ministry of external affairs.
