According to sources associated with the Ministry of External Affairs, there is an international racket which is exploiting Indian citizens by offering jobs in Thailand. According to sources, Indian citizens are illegally brought to Myanmar by luring them with jobs. According to information received from different sources, more than 60 Indian citizens have been duped through this racket.

If sources are to be believed, these rackets are in Myawadi area which is not completely under the control of Myanmar government. It is dominated by ethnic armed groups and Indian and many other foreign nationals are being held with them. Foreign Ministry sources said that our embassy is working closely with the Myanmar government to rescue them.

Sources in the Ministry of External Affairs said, other efforts are being made to rescue these Indian nationals through various contacts between the business community.
