Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday wrote to External Affairs Minister S Jayshankar requesting his personal intervention in the release and repatriation of 10 people from Odisha held captive by their employer in Dubai. In his letter, Pradhan stated that he got to know about this through media reports.

"On further enquiry, it is revealed that 10 people who were working in the company Asia Pacific Building Contracting LLC, Dubai and accommodated at Sajja, Sharjah are held captive," Pradhan said.
