Ballari: The family of a 44-year-old man who died in Saudi Arabia about 9 days ago, has been desperately awaiting his body.

Satyanarayana Bidaruru hailing from Hosapete was employed as an operator in Saudi Arabia over the last three-and-half-years. He died on January 23 while playing cricket in Saudi, it is said.

The information about his death was passed on to the family by Bidaruru’s friend Damodar Naidu.

However, even after 9 days of the tragic demise, Bidaruru’s body has not reached the grieving family members.

Srinivas Bidaruru, brother of the deceased said that on January 24, the family had sent an e-mail to the company requesting them to send the dead body to Ballari. However, the company has not responded.

He said that the Indian embassy at Riyadh has given its no objection certificate and that the family had also approached Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.

“We have also tweeted to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah seeking help. But there has been no response,” Srinivas said.
