Minister: “All Efforts Are On To Free Indians Trapped In Myanmar.”

The MoS Muraleedharan's assurance comes a day after more than 30 Indians were saved in Myanmar despite security issues.

New Delhi: On Wednesday, Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan stated that the Indian Mission in Myanmar was closely monitoring the situation involving Indian nationals who had been illegally brought to the country and that every effort was being made to have them released as soon as possible.

According to information from the Ministry of External Affairs, more than 60 Indian people entered Myanmar illegally (MEA). Citizens were enticed with job offers in Thailand but were transferred illegally into Myanmar as part of a global scam.

“Spoke to our Ambassador Vinay Kumar regarding Indians held in Myanmar. Ambassador apprised me on the developments and informed that all efforts are on to release the Indians as soon as possible. Mission is closely following up the matter,” Muraleedharan tweeted.

The MoS Muraleedharan’s assurance comes a day after more than 30 Indians were saved in Myanmar despite security issues.

“Despite security challenges and other legal and logistical difficulties, we have rescued more than 30 Indians so far, and are making all possible efforts to secure the release of other Indians who have fallen prey to criminal groups,” the Indian embassy in Myanmar tweeted on September 20.

An earlier report cited sources as saying that the government does not have complete control over the town of Myawaddy in southeast Myanmar. The Indian and numerous other foreign nationals are being held by ethnic armed groups that are in power.

According to MEA sources, the embassy has been collaborating closely with the Myanmar government to coordinate their rescue.

Following the publication of this information, the Indian Embassy in Yangon, Myanmar, issued a warning regarding businesses operating in remote eastern border regions of Myanmar that engage in digital scamming.

“The Mission has observed in the recent past that some IT companies engaged in digital scamming/forge crypto activities located in remote eastern border areas of Myanmar are recruiting Indian workers from different places through their recruiting agents on the pretext of potential employment opportunities in IT sector,” the advisory said.

According to the warning, it was made easier for Indian labourers to enter Myanmar illegally and without sufficient papers, which led to their capture.

“In view of the above, Indian nationals are hereby requested to exercise due caution and verify the antecedents of the recruiting agents’ it is advisable to have all requisite information (job description, company details, location, employment contract etc.) before accepting any employment that has been offered,” it added.
