Distressed Indians in Saudi: Swaraj gets report from embassy

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday said she has received a report from the Indian Embassy in Saudi Arabia about some distressed nationals in Dubai who spent more than a fortnight in a bus after being duped by a placement agency.

“I have got the report from Indian Embassy in Saudi Arabia. They contacted Embassy in October 2015 with a request to leave Saudi Arabia. The Embassy provided a lawyer who is fighting their case. The next date of hearing is January 6, 2016. Since the exit is provided by Sponsor of the company, they are working for intervention of the local authorities,” Swaraj tweeted.
