The human rights watchdog claimed it had spoken over the phone with some Indian workers working for an infrastructure and construction company who said they were in danger as their employers had “refused to return their passports”, thus rendering them unable to leave the country.
Official sources here said the Indian mission in Baghdad has already contacted the company concerned and the matter is likely to be resolved soon.
“We have contacted the company concerned. The companies are already responsive. We are already working with them. They will have these people come across. There will be somebody from the embassy who goes there, will sit down with the company and all the employees and decide on this,” they said.
