Dubai, Oct 22 (UNI) Indians in Saudi Arabia are shocked over the murder of an NRI businessman in New Delhi last week and are planning to seek a CBI inquiry into the incident.
K T Shamir(40), owner of a textile business in Batha business district in Riyadh, was murdered after he hired a private taxi on his arrival at the Delhi airport from Ahmedabad. His wife Wahida Shamir and four children left for India yesterday.
The culprits, who have been apprehended by Indian police last Sunday, withdrew about SR 25,000 (Rs 3 lakh)using the victim's ATM as his belongings and credit cards were snatched before the murder.
The abductors, who used the ATM card at different locations in New Delhi, managed to get the secret pin number of the card at the gun point. Shamir, who hails from a town near Kannur, Kerala, was a young business entrepreneur with zeal to expand his family-owned business in Saudi Arabia, the Arab News said.
Fajrudeen Mooppan, general secretary of the Federation of Kerala Association (FOKASA), said he would call Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit to demand a CBI inquiry into the murder case. ''How can a businessman from Riyadh be taken by three people in a private taxi immediately after landing at the airport. The murder is still a mystery.'' he said.
Mr Mooppan called on the Delhi government to ensure full security to NRI businessmen visiting Delhi.
