These labourers had contacted Shri Anil Swain for an overseas job by paying an amount of Rs.70,000/- per head. Shri Swain had assured them a job with better salary package. They were at first taken to Kerala, were enrolled under M/s Planet Consultancy and from there were taken to Oman. In Oman, they were forced to work in sub- human conditions. After two months, when request for their salary /wages, was made to the agency, they were brutally tortured, beaten and were kept under house arrest. These youths now feel cheated and duped. At once they reported the matter to their family members, who tried to contact the local authorities for immediate repatriation. However, fill date a positive affirmation is awaited,” said Minister Pradhan in his letter addressed to Foreign Minister Sushama Swaraj.
