Job fraud in Kuwait - Stranded youths to receive passports on Jul 10

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Kuwait, Jul 10: Indians stuck at Kuwait after becoming victims of a fake racket, are expected to get back their passports on Wednesday, July 10. They will return in three batches, July 13, 15, and 17. However, the future of 15 persons including eight Mangalureans whose legal issues still await solution is uncertain.

Those who will continue to stay put there are Imtiaz, Azeez Abdulla, Haneef Abbu, Mohammed Irfan, Ganesh Shivaram, Abdul Azeez, Mohammed Arif Bannur and Ashfaq Amir Hussain. Their legal issues with the company which offered employment are yet to be sorted out.

Six including four from Mangaluru will depart Kuwait on July 13 while 15 from Andhra Pradesh will leave on July 15. On July 17, 29 from here and four from Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu will travel to Mumbai and reach their native places by train.

NRI sources said that the company has refused to return their passports as it has been claiming that they have not returned the company vehicle and other things. Although the company said it will hand over passports to individual workers, the Indian embassy has asked the same to be routed through their office.

At the same time, Reshma Suvarna, who was under house arrest and was released and kept in the rehabilitation centre of the Indian embassy will have to wait for at least a month to return to Casba Bengre here. The Indian embassy sources said that there is a need to wait for the family to file missing complaint. If a complaint is filed, legal issues associated with it have to be addressed. Her passport has to be collected from the person who brought her to Kuwait on work. If this is not possible, the embassy will have to send her back on the basis of out pass .

Reshma had gone to Kuwait with her husband on January 2, 2018 after both of them bagged employment. Her husband,who was working elsewhere, had died in a few days later. Reshma, who was looking after household work, was not provided food properly, nor was she getting salary. She also used to be tortured, and made to work from 7 am to 12 pm. The door of the house remained locked when the family went out, and Reshma somehow had managed to reach the Indian embassy.

    It is good news that some of the stranded youths held up in Kuwait since many months will sent back to their respective places in India. They have gone through a terrible ordeal. I hope that all the others will be back. I wish them good luck.
