Ashington Man's Return From India Delayed
The family of an Ashington man, being held in India, have told Heart they're worried he'll be kept there for another 2 months.
Nick Dunn was held along with a group of 3 other British men in 2013 for weapons charges.
Those charges have been dropped but the authorities in India won't let him and the rest of the group fly home.
He's had his personal belongings and passport taken away from him, and is awaiting a decision from India's Supreme Court as to when he'll be allowed to have them returned.
He was hoping for the decision this afternoon, but the court's now closed for the summer without letting him leave the country.
That means Nick and the other man face at least 2 more months in India, until the court reopens on the 1st of July.
In messages to Heart, Nick says:
"I pray they (the authorities) come to their senses and let me come home.
I wait very anxiously for a decision."
