The family of a 26-year-old youth, Sunny, who had died in Malaysia on  February 13, is awaiting the body. Member of Parliament Navjot Singh Sidhu has taken up the matter with the external affairs minister Salman Khurshid.


Talking to HT, Sanjeev Sharma, uncle of the victim, said, “My nephew worked in Malaysia as a security guard and had gone there two-and-half years back. On February 13, we received a phone call from Malaysia that Sunny has died.”

“We are in a shock and are in regular touch with Sunny's friends in Malaysia, who told us that the government there is not helping them and sending the body to India may take some time,” he said.
