Dubai, Jul 28 (UNI) An Indian worker who was beaten up by a supervisor for running to the aid of a co-worker during an assault has died in the Riyadh Medical Complex.
Sudheesh Kalathil Parambil, who died yesterday and hailed from Kerala, was in the intensive care at the hospital for 11 days after suffering internal injuries during the assault.
He was brought to the hospital by social workers who found him in a critical condition in Al-Kharj, 80 km from the capital, after he was brought there by a do-gooder.
Parambil was employed by a construction company at its worksite in Barak, about 150 km from the southern city of Khamis Mushayt.
His mother, Vasumathi, requested the Indian Embassy in Riyadh to arrange an inquiry into her son's death. She had also called for punishment for her son's killer.
Hours before Parambil's death, Indian Overseas and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi had sent an urgent message to Indian Ambassador MOH Farook to help investigate the case.
The Arab News quoting a social worker said the Indian mission failed to take action after the assault was reported. ''They woke up only after his death,'' he said.
