India appeals in 'eye for an eye' ruling.
E. Ahamed, India's junior foreign minister, told Parliament that a Saudi court had ordered that the worker, Abdul Lateef Naushad's right eye be gouged out after the Saudi citizen, Naif Al-Otaibi, lost his right eye during a fight.
Naushad was arrested in Saudi Arabia soon after the incident in April 2003.
A court ruled that under Sharia law Naushad's right eye be removed.
Ahamed told MPs that a mercy petition was submitted to Saudi King Abdullah earlier this week
