Bengal Based NGO Rescued 1 of the 62 Captivated Job Seekers Who Were Sent to Malaysia Through Human-Trafficking
Modern-day slavery or human-trafficking is emerging in an alarming rate in India as news came that one of the 62 stranded job seekers from India who were allegedly held captive in Malaysia, successfully brought back to India on Monday, November 12 with the help of a Kolkata based NGO named National Anti-Trafficking Committee.
By bringing back the Pandua( Distric- Hoogly) staying 27 years old young Sanjay Mallick back to his country as well as to his home, the NGO has first brought attention to the plight of job seekers who had gone to Malaysia.
As per the sources, an agent named Kabir Hussain had given Mallik the offer to go to Malaysia to earn good money by doing light laborious work. Mallik had to hand over him an amount of 75,000 for visa verification and flight charges. However, they all were made salves, by forcing to carry iron materials weighing 50 to 60 Kgs, as informed by Mallik. He claimed that the agent “sold” him to a buyer in Malaysia, where they were made to work as “slaves.” Not only that, when they expressed their wishes to return to India, were demanded large sums of money which obviously they were unable to pay.
The NGO has informed the Ministry Of External Affairs, Prime Minister, office as well as the the West Bengal Chief Minister’s Office to rescue the people, by putting light to their situation through a video shared on social media.
From the video it was came to know that the 2 people from the group claimed that their passports and visas were snatched, after reaching Malaysia. Besides, they were taken to Kuching, capital of the Malaysian state of Sarawak.
According to the video, the captivates were kept room and were denied basic amenities like food and medical assistance.
Out of the left 61 who are still stuck there, 31 are from different districts of West Bengal, while the rest are from Rajasthan, said Sheikh Jinnar Ali, chairman of the NGO. Jinnar added that while Mallick is back, 25 others have been identified in various locations in Malaysia.
The Kolkata Breeze requests the concerned authorities to look into the matter and rescue the other 61 Indians, who are still stuck in Malaysia. Government needs to look into the matter that why people are moving outside the country in the false hope of getting a lucrative job. People needs to be educated and well-aware of these human-trafficking agents,so that they will not fall prey to their false alluration
