Job offers

38 Indians, victims of job offers from transnational crime syndicates, returnees from Myanmar

New Delhi: Thirty-eight Indians, victims of job offers by transnational crime syndicates in Myanmar’s Myawaddy region, were repatriated on Thursday.

Last month, 13 people, who were part of the group trapped in the Myawaddy area, were rescued. In September, 32 Indians were rescued from Myawaddy through the joint efforts of Indian missions in Myanmar and Thailand.

“@IndiainMyanmar today repatriated 38 Indian nationals who were victims of job offers by transnational crime syndicates in the Myawaddy region of Myanmar,” said the Indian Mission to Myanmar tweeted.

They left Yangon for Kolkata from where they would travel to their respective places of origin, he added.

“We appreciate the assistance provided by the Myanmar authorities and other contacts. As we continue our efforts to secure the release of the remaining Indian nationals, we reiterate warnings against job offers from transnational crime syndicates,” the Indian Embassy in Yangon said.
