Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh sought Centre's intervention for the release of a Punjabi youth from a Malaysian jail.
The Punjab Chief Minister wrote a letter to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar drawing his attention to Harbans Singh's case, who is lodged in a Malaysian jail.
Harbans Singh is a resident of a village in Bathinda district. He had gone to Malaysia in August 2018 on a tourist visa. He was taken into police custody on grounds unknown to his family.
"His (Harbans') family has disclosed that he had gone to Malaysia in August 2018 on a tourist visa. However, the family is unaware on what grounds the Malaysian police has taken him into custody," the letter read.
A copy of his Aadhaar card, voter ID card and his photograph were enclosed with the letter as proof of his Indian citizenship.
