His family has sought help from the government to travel to the US to perform his last rites.


A 37-year-old man from Hyderabad was allegedly killed in Georgia, the United States on Sunday. 

According to the news agency ANI report, his family members have sought help from the state government in order to make arrangements for them to travel to the US.

As per the report, the deceased Mohd Arif Mohiuddin had been running a grocery business at Georgia for the last 10 years.

"I request the government to make arrangements for me and my father to travel to the US on an emergency visa so that we can conduct his final rites there," Mehnaz Fathima, wife of deceased Mohd, was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

He was reportedly stabbed multiple times and was found outside his home.

“On Sunday at around 9 am, I spoke to him and he told me that he will call back in half an hour but I did not get any call from him. Later through my sister-in-law, I came to know that my husband was stabbed to death by some unknown person. Now his body is at a hospital in Georgia. There is no other family member around him," she added. 

According to the NDTV reports, CCTV footage has reportedly shown multiple assailants including an employee at the store.

Ullah Khan, the spokesperson for Telangana-based party Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT), has written to the Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and the Indian embassy in the US on behalf of the family.
