The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that the alleged abduction of a Bihari youth by the Indian police in Saudi Arabia has turned into a diplomatic issue with Riyadh "not saying anything."
The government said Fasih Mohammed, wanted in terror cases, was neither in India nor in the custody of any police here.
"Now this is a question of diplomacy. We have been writing letters," Additional Solicitor General Gaurav Banerji told a bench comprising justice KS Radhakrishnan and jusice JS Khehar.
The court adjourned the hearing to July.
