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.
