Speaking to Khaleej Times, Selvaraj said he has braved traffic, heat, sandstorms and exhaustion while trekking along the busy highways of Dubai, travelling a distance of 22 km one way to reach Dubai Courts from his Sonapur accommodation (on the outskirts of Dubai) to attend the labour court proceedings.

Selvaraj began his court journeys after his mother died in Tamil Nadu and he was denied permission to go and attend her funeral.

His case has gone on for almost two years and Selvaraj said he must have walked at least 20 times to Karama district in Dubai from Sonapur and back — every time covering a distance of 50-plus kilometres in four hours. (IANS)
