NEW DELHI: A social media post stating that a group of 14 Indians from Tamil Nadu are stranded in Malaysia after being allegedly duped by a job agent drew External Affairs Minister Sushama Swaraj's attention today as she said the Indian envoy in Kuala Lumpur has contacted them.       

A Facebook post by one of the victims said they were a group of 14 people from Tamil Nadu and had arrived in Malaysia in July. The post said they were promised a higher salary by a job agent in Tamil Nadu but were given a lesser amount and when they protested and refused to work they were allegedly beaten.          

The post drew the attention of External Affairs Minister Swaraj, who tweeted, "Our High Commission in Malaysia has contacted them. Police has taken cognizance. Please contact Mission for any help." She also posted a link to the Facebook post.
