Ballari man dies in Saudi, family awaits body for 9 days

A family in Hosapete has been desperately awaiting the body of a 44-year-old member who died in Saudi Arabia nine days ago.

Satyanarayana Bidaruru (44) was working as an operator with a company in Saudi Arabia for three-and-half years. His brother Srinivas Bidaruru said that Satyanarayana died on January 23 while playing cricket.

“We got the information from Damodara Naidu, who was working with Satyanarayana. We sent an e-mail to the company with a request to hand over the body to Naidu, on January 24. But, the company has not been responding,” Srinivas said.

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.
