HYDERABAD: It took four months for the body of a Nizamabad worker, who died in Saudi Arabia, to be sent back home. The body of Vontari Narsa Reddy, which arrived at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, was taken to his native Sirnapally village in Indalwai mandal where the last rites were performed on Sunday.
Telangana Jagruthi Saudi Arabia president Moazzam Ali Iftekar said the matter was pursued with the Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia after a report was published in TOI on February 9 about the agony of the family which had been waiting for the body to be sent back. “We have completed the formalities that were required from our side for repatriation of the body,” the employers told Ifetkar in a phone conversation a few days ago. The Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia made arrangements to send the body to Hyderabad.
Narsa Reddy was working in Saudi Arabia for the last seven years. From the information that was made available to him, 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, wife of Narsa Reddy, had approached the high court with the assistance of Pravasi Mithra Labour Union (PMLU) urging that the court intervene and help bring her husband’s body home. A writ was filed on her behalf by human rights activist P Shashi Kiran on February 4.
