Mission Yangon gaining strength, 150 persons identified; recruiting firm in Madurai played key role in offering jobs

KOCHI: It has been found that a recruiting firm in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, played a key role in offering jobs in Thailand to Malayalis and Tamils ​​abducted by armed gangs in Myanmar. The abducted people are being forced and tortured to do cyber crimes by a Chinese company in Myanmar. The Union Ministry of External Affairs has written to the Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary seeking action against the institution in Madurai. The aim is to trace the owner and employees and extend the investigation to those behind the employment fraud. Recruiting agencies outside the country like OKX Plus, Lazada, Super Energy Group and Essential Group have also trafficked Indians to Thailand. This is stated in the report handed over by the investigation teams to the Union Ministry of External Affairs.

India has intensified its efforts to bring back Indians imprisoned in rebel-held areas in Myanmar. It is difficult to carry out rescue operations in this area. The Indian Embassy in Myanmar is drawing strength from the rescue of 32 people through Mission Yangon. Most of them reached Myanmar through the Thailand border.

The Indians were initially brought to IT institutions in Myawaddy, a tribal area over which the Myanmar government has little control, and used for cyber crimes. They may be shifted to secret centres as the central government has started the rescue operation.
