AGARTALA, Sept 8 - A 32-year old youth from Tripura has been rescued from his employers in Saudi Arabia following intervention by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, sources said today.
Gopal Das, a resident of South Tripura, had gone to Saudi Arabia in search of a job three years ago. He got a job as a driver but was made to slave for about 22 hours a day working also as a household and agricultural farm worker for his employer.
The employer had sacked him and drove him out of his house on August 29. A person Russel Sinha tweeted a video to Swaraj on August 31 and the Minister promptly directed the Indian Consulate in Jeddah to rescue Gopal. Gopal returned here last night. � PTI
