HYDERABAD: Indian Embassy in Saudi Arabia on Thursday confirmed that a couple from Nizamabad, Mohammed Ismail and Farzana Banu, who were duped by local agents on the pretext on providing employment in Dammam, have been repatriated. 

They landed at RGI Airport in Hyderabad on Thursday night. The couple had informed the Embassy that after they came to Dammam, Farzana was made to work under inhuman conditions and Mohammed was not given any job and later was compelled to work as a labourer.

With the help of an Embassy official, the couple was first provided protection by Dammam police. Moreover, Mohammad moved to a Saudi labour court where he was asked to produce his sponsors. But, when his sponsor did not turn up, the court asked him to return to his country.

“After preparing their emergency passports, we have sent the couple back to India,” the Embassy officials told Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT).
