Acting on a petition filed by a resident of Hoshiarpur district seeking directions to the Centre to provide information about her husband following phone calls that he had been beheaded in Saudi Arabia, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday asked the authorities concerned at the Centre to inform the family of his whereabouts.

Setting a seven-day deadline, Justice Tejinder Singh Dhindsa asked the Centre to provide all the details to his wife, Seema Rani of Dasuya.

She has contended that her husband was confined at Riyadh prison in Saudi Arabia since 2015-2016, while he was working as a driver. The trial of the case was going on. Till February 21, her husband would talk over phone, but thereafter till date no phone call had been received.

Her counsel said the petitioner and her family received various phone calls from an unidentified person claiming that her husband had been beheaded on February 28 by the jail authorities. Since then, they were running from pillar to post. But the official respondents did not bother to give written assurance that her husband was alive.

It was added that her husband Satwinder Kumar had gone to Saudi Arabia on a valid visa in 2013.
