2 Indian workers held captive by employer in Saudi Arabia return home
The two alleged that they were held captive in an abandoned quarter without adequate food, despite an assurance by authorities that they would be allowed to return home by April-end.
Earlier, Sharma had said that the two labourers ''somehow managed to survive on leftovers given to them by other labourers out of pity''.
“We have never thought of return to homeland. We were subjected to severe inhuman treatment...kept under tin shades during day time without electricity in around 50 degrees Celsius,” Mohammed told PTI upon his return to homeland.
In February this year, the two victims uploaded a video on social media and pleaded for help, said Sharma.
The issue was brought to the notice of the central government, he added.
