We frequently make representations on Mr Johal’s behalf. Most recently, I raised Mr Johal’s case with the Indian Foreign Secretary, Vijay Gokhale on 12 March. I continue to engage with Mr Johal’s family: alongside the Foreign Secretary, I met with the family and their MP, Martin Docherty-Hughes on 24 April. Our consular staff in India visit Mr Johal regularly.
