India to appeal for clemency

`The Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia is going to make an appeal for royal clemency for a jailed expatriate worker following a court order that his one eye be gouged out for partially blinding a Saudi national in a fight.

Abdul Lateef Naushad, 34, from Kerala got into a fight with a Saudi man and injured him in 2003. The Saudi man reportedly lost sight in one eye several weeks later.’
