An Indian was beheaded in Saudi Arabia on charges of drug smuggling almost a week ago, but now an Indian embassy report says he was innocent, official sources say.
Sources in the External Affairs Ministry said they had received reports from Saudi Arabia that Shah Jahan, an auto rickshaw driver from Wayanad district of Kerala, was in fact innocent and was duped by two visa agents.
Shah Jahan had reportedly been tricked by two people – one from his hometown and the other from Chennai – who helped him get a visa to Saudi Arabia.
The Ministry sources said there has been no information about these two.
