MP Martin Docherty-Hughes, who represents the constituency of the Johal family home in Dumbarton, has been working with cross-party colleagues to highlight Mr Johal’s case.
SNP MP Martin Docherty-Hughes said he was stepping up his campagn to secure “justice for Jagtar”.
Martin Docherty-Hughes MP said: “It’s now 100 days that my constituent has been held by the Indian authorities and he has yet to be charged with any crime.
“Jagtar’s family in Dumbarton are deeply concerned for his welfare. He is their son, their brother and their friend – and they remain determined to secure justice for Jagtar and bring him home to Scotland.
International human rights organisation REDRESS has cited Jagtar’s case as evidence that the UK government must do more to protect British nationals detained abroad.

The longer my constituent spends in custody without charge, the more concerned we are about his physical & mental wellbeing. Our message to @BorisJohnson is clear: the UK govt must do more to ensure the rights of British citizens detained abroad are protected
