The government on Monday told the Supreme Court that Bihar engineer Fasih Mehmood was under the detention of the Saudi Arabian authorities.

Additional Solicitor General Gourab Banerjee told the apex court bench headed by justice P Sathasivam that Saudi authorities have informed the CBI on June 26 that he was under their detention.

The court directed the government to file a report on the status of Fasih within three weeks. Fasih's wife Nikhat Parveen had filed an application seeking to know the whereabouts of her husband.

Fasih, 35, who hails from a village in Darbhanga district of Bihar, was reportedly arrested in Saudi Arabia May 14 for suspected terror links in India.
