"My son Mohd Ghouse Uddin went to Italy in 2016 for study and he came back to India last year. He again left for Rome six months ago to complete his course," Raheem Uddin said.
"As we are poor, my son was working there and studying on scholarship. Later in a hotel, an issue erupted between my son and some other people, following which, the police arrested him and sent him to the court," he added.
Narrating his ordeal, Raheem Uddin further said, "In the court, magistrate noticed that my son was mentally ill and referred him to treatment. He is in jail now since March 14 and getting the treatment. My son earlier also faced mental illness problem in Hyderabad but it was cured completely."
"I received a phone call from officials asking me to come to Italy and take my son. But I am very poor and cannot afford the travelling expenses. I request the state and central government to help me get back my son from Italy," he added.
