Kerala nurse on death row: Delhi High Court asks Centre whether Nimisha Priya’s family can be allowed to go to Yemen to pay blood money

Advocate Pavan Narang appeared for the Central government today and reiterated before the Court that the Indian government has no diplomatic presence in Yemen after the regime change. As such, it would not be possible for the government to ensure the safety of the family, the government counsel said.

The counsel for Priya’s parents told the Court that they had asked the Indian government to negotiate with the victim’s family. However, because it is the government’s stand that they cannot enter into such deals, the family is left with no choice but to travel to Yemen and make efforts on their own, the parents submitted.

Justice Arora considered the case and asked advocate Narang to take instructions on whether the family could be allowed to travel to Yemen.

However, the Court clarified that travel permission will not be granted to the petitioner’s 10-year-old daughter.

As the petitioner’s counsel stated that they want to make the Yemeni embassy in India a party to the case, Justice Arora said that the request may be considered by the roster bench on Monday.
