Chennai, July 6 (BPNS)
A woman from Chengalpattu district of Tamil Nadu has petitioned the Union External affairs ministry to bring the mortal remains of her husband, Prakash Panneerselvam (33)from Germany who was murdered there.
The 23 year old woman, P. Divya in her petition said that her husband was murdered in Germany by a co-worker also hailing from Tamil Nadu last week. In her petition to the Union external affairs ministry, Divya said that she got the information of the death of her husband from other Tamil workers. She however said that later, the officials from the Indian embassy in Germany had called her and took her the details of Prakash Panneerselvam.
She said that her husband Prakash was working as a welder in the middle east and was lured by another person to take up a job in Hungary as a welder offering a higher package. Divya in the petition said that Prakash had paid an amount of Rs 2.5 lakh rupees for the Visa and flight tickets to Hungary and reached the European country in March 2022. The woman said that on reaching Hungary, her husband found that his job was not as a welder but instead as a cable layer.
Divya in the petition said that he worked in the Hungarian company and then a group of Germans who were working in the same company took some Indians including her husband to Germany in April 2023. She also said that her husband had not received any salary for the past few months.
Divya also petitioned the Tamil Nadu government to provide support to bring the body of her husband back to India and also wanted the government intervention to get back his salary dues for five months.
