Mangalore, Feb 7: "A special guidance cell to help those who go abroad either for work or study will be started soon," said Ravindranath Shanbhog, president of the Consumer Forum operating from Basrur.

He was speaking at the interactive meet on the development programmes by Revenue Department at the deputy commissioner's office here on Monday February 6.

He said that a lot of Indians face troubles and are arrested by police in the Gulf and Middle East region for various reasons.  It is mainly because they do not have proper knowledge about the place they are going and the laws of the country.  Even language is a big barrier.  Owing to all these problems, many Indians are languishing in the jails in the Middle East countries.

So it is planned to open a Guidance Cell where the people who would like to go abroad will be given detailed information about the country they wish to go and the laws of that country.  This cell would function in lines with the voluntary organizations.

He even cited the examples of the like of Pauline D'Souza who was under her employer’s forced detention for 14 years Lebanon, to explain as how Indians suffer in these countries.

Deputy district magistrate and assistant commissioner Prabhakar Sharma, Puttur assistant commissioner Subraya Kamath, tahsildars from all taluks and other officials were present on the occasion.
