A Nizamabad man, who was sentenced to death for murder in Saudi Arabia, is set to return home as a local businessman paid Saudi Riyal 1.3 million (approximately `1.80 cr) as blood money on his behalf to get him pardoned. Nizamabad MP K Kavitha had taken up the issue of Limbadri, who was in a Saudi jail for the last eight years.

After Kavitha spoke to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, a Saudi businessman, Awad bin Guraiah Al Sami, offered the 'diyah' to save Limbadri.

Limbadri was arrested nine years ago when he pushed a Saudi national following a violent attack. The Saudi national succumbed to injuries in a hospital three days after the incident. Subsequently ,a local court awarded Limbadri death penalty.
