Bahrain, Jun 5: The Indian embassy in Bahrain plans to file a case against the sponsor of five Indian workers who were "locked up" in their room for demanding overtime dues.

The workers have, however, withdrawn the complaint they had filed with police against the sponsor after the last Thursday incident, following which the manager of their construction company has been released by the public prosecutor.

Indian ambassador to Bahrain Balkrishna Shetty said the embassy's legal experts would meet the workers to find out under what circumstances they withdrew the case against the sponsor.

"Once we find out, we will follow up the issue with the attorney general. The sponsor who has taken the law into his hands should be dealt with according to the country's law. We shall file a case against the sponsor to ensure justice to the workers," he said.

The five workers -- Balakrishnan Soman, Jayamani Kakiya Perumal, Swaminathan Bharathiraj, Sethuraman Arumugam and Dhatchana Moorthy Amritalingam -- were allegedly locked up on Thursday by the sponsors' son and Kingdom Tower Building construction company manager Hassan Salman after they refused to work for extra hours without being paid overtime dues.
