Saudi Arabia: Indian Worker Battles for Life in Riyadh


DUBAI, Jul 19: An Indian worker, who was allegedly manhandled by his superior for protecting his co-worker from assault, is fighting for life at a hospital in Riyadh, reports said on Saturday.

Sudheesh Kalathilparambil, hailing from Kerala, was brought to the hospital by a group of social workers that found him in critical condition in Al-Kharj, about 80km from the Saudi capital, the report said.

Sudheesh, working as a manual labourer in a construction company in Khamis Mushayt at a worksite in Barak, had to bear the brunt of his boss when he tried to save his colleagues.

A supervisor of the company, an Egyptian national, began physically assaulting the workers while they were taking a short break during the work. Sudheesh intervened on his colleagues' behalf. The supervisor then turned his rage on Sudheesh and beat him, the Arab News said in a report.

The Federation of Kerala Associations in Saudi Arabia has written a letter to the governmental Human Rights Commission and the government-approved National Human Rights Commission asking the organisations to investigate the matter.
