Four young Indian women who were forced to become bar dancers have been rescued.
The females were supposed to serve as hostesses at an event.
A spokesperson for the Consulate General of India (CGI) said the employer detained the girls and forced them as dancers.
The women came into the country to work at an “event management” company.
They were duped and detained illegally by their employer. The CGI with the help of local authorities rescued the girls, based on an alert.
Minister of State for External Affairs & Parliamentary Affairs, V Muraleedharan said, “Acting on an alert, with the help of local authorities @cgidubai has rescued four young Indian female workers belonging to Tamil Nadu today. They were duped and detained illegally by their employer in Dubai.”
Muraleedharan tweeted, “Our Consulate in Dubai is arranging their repatriation back to India quickly. @narendramodi government never compromises on the welfare of Indian workers abroad.”
According to media reports, the women flew back to the country on Friday afternoon.
According to the spokesperson of the CGI, the victims had no job contracts and they came into the country on a visit and not work visa.
The CGI has called upon Indians to avoid coming into the country on visit visas with the hope of converting it to an employment visa.
