Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin today wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting for the immediate rescue and safe repatriation of Indians held in illegal captivity in Myanmar.

In a Demi-Official letter to the Prime Minister, copies of which were released to the media here, he said information has been received by the State Government that nearly 300 Indians, including around 50 Tamils are stuck in Myanmar facing severe hardships.

It is informed that they had initially gone to Thailand for IT related jobs through private recruitment agencies. It is now understood that they were forcibly taken from Thailand to Myanmar for carrying out illegal jobs online, he said.

“Further, reports are being received that they are physically assaulted by their employers on their refusal to do so”, Stalin said, adding, the State Government is in touch with 17 such Tamils who are desperately seeking the support of the Government to intervene quickly and rescue them.

“Considering the plight of our citizens, I request that MEA may be instructed to take up the issue with the authorities in Myanmar for the immediate rescue and safe repatriation of Indians held in illegal captivity in Myanmar”, he said and sought Modi’s urgent intervention in this regard.
