Mohammed Arif Mohiuddin's wife further said she had spoken to him over the phone on Sunday night.

'He told me once he reached home he would call back to me but later he didn't speak nor respond to my calls. Then I called my sister-in-law and through their friends circle in Georgia I came to know that my husband was murdered and police have shifted his body to a hospital,' she said.

Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) leader Amjed Ullah Khan, also wrote to Jaishankar requesting him to ask the Indian Embassy in the US to contact Mohammed Arif Mohiuddin's family here and help them and also requested the US Consulate in Hyderabad to provide emergency visa to them.PTI VVK SS PTI PTI
